Last night’s #KittenCamp NYC meme battle was a complete ROFL-fest, with Meme Master Meow (aka @theQuiggler) taking on a tag team of the LOL Hound (@Mark_Fallows from McCann NY) and the ROFL Fox (@NattyB_NYC from Y&R).
Meme Master Meow took an early lead with an old school YouTube cat classic *Pinkey the cat*, but then rapidly fell behind as the LOL Hound and ROFL Fox came back with a super awesome LOL combo including the Dove Man spoof and Samesies, finally winning the battle with their Daft Punk vs Soul Train remix.
Following the LOLZ we then had special guests Brad O’Farrell (aka inventor of Keyboard cat) and Amy Vernon (aka first lady of Digg) provide some learning. Brad gave some super interesting insights into how he helped Keyboard cat turn into the internet’s biggest cat meme and his experiences raising $360,000+ for his game-based Kickstarter project. Amy then took the stage to discuss the rise and fall of Digg, and the recent rise of Reddit to become the king of the internet underbelly.
Huge thanks to the #KittenCamp crowd for all their LOLZ. Sign up to the #KittenCamp Facebook page to keep in touch with kitten shenanigans, and follow VAN on Twitter for general viral LOLZ and learning. Next stop San Francisco – where we’ll be LOLing with the West Coast crowd . . .
Here’s a couple of favourites from last night . . .
