Movie Filmed Entirely By Chimps To Be Aired

January 25, 2010

The BBC will be airing the appropriately titled 'Chimpcam' on BBC Two at 2000GMT on Wednesday January, 27th, during the 'Natural World' show. It was shot entirely by chimps at the Edinburgh Zoo toting video cameras around their enclosures. Amazingly, none of them made sex videos.

Gradually, the chimps started playing with the Chimpcam, carrying it around the enclosure.

The chimps soon became interested in the camera view screen on the Chimpcam box, watching what happened as they moved the Chimpcam around filming new images.

The apes are unlikely to have actively tried to film any particular subject, or understand that by carrying Chimpcam around, they were making a film.

However, the result, as well as providing new information on how chimps like to see the world, may yet go down in television history.

I don't care what you say, 'Chimpcam' beats the hell out of those douchedufflebags of 'Jersey Shore' any day. And, God willing, hucks shit at them.

Thanks to Erica, who once attached a video camera to her dog's collar. He chewed it off.
