April #KittenCamp round-up: SXSW Hangover hair-of-the-dog

A great turnout for a particularly sparky #KittenCamp at Barrio Central. Thanks for coming along everyone!

BBC Comedy dude Will Saunders kicked things off with some exclusive new material including the lol-some Horse iPad sketch from Dawson Bros Funtime sketch show. We saw some really funny other stuff that is SO exclusive it hasn’t even been launched yet – watch out for them on BBC Comedy soon!

We also really enjoyed Paul McCrudden from AMV BBDO talking about their campaign for Snickers – ‘You’re not you when you’re hungry’, which involved hi-jacking the Twitter accounts of celebs with a barrage of out-of-character tweets: Rio Ferdinand suddenly tweeting about how much he loved knitting, and Katie ‘Jordan’ Price confidently stating her view on the Chinese economy, brilliant!

Jon Burkhart took the stage to tell us about what went down at the previous Urgent Genius, featuring all sorts of things that were urgent or genius or both, including their parody of the Guardian Three Little Pigs ad. And here’s the original in case you’d missed it.

A tense meme battle commenced between Meme Master Meow and April’s LOLPuppy guest James Mitchell from BBH Labs. Here are the highlights:

And the rest:
