Digital platform Babelgum has commissioned 12 new episodes of pop culture parody series Kids Reenact.
The first two viral shorts are available today on Babelgum’s web and mobile platforms. These are part of 4 videos riffing on The Bachelorette (the other two episodes will follow June 13.)
In July, there will be 4 new videos of kids taking on summer blockbusters.
The Kids Reenact series features children re-enacting scenes from guilty pleasures.
“Kids Reenact continues to be a huge traffic driver because we strategically tap into the existing audiences of today’s most popular series and provide smart parodies of the shows they already know and love,” said Babelgum Comedy Publisher, Amber J. Lawson. “We chose material based on timeliness and focused media attention, increasing the likelihood of being picked up by other outlets and going viral. This format has proved successful in creating series on zeitgeisty topics like Kanye’s Tweets where the kids reenacted Kanye West’s real-life tweets. That truth in comedy plus kids equals the closest formula to a sure-fire original content viral hit.”
