If you’ve rocked out to songs about fanny packs and dinosaurs at the Vans Warped Tour, then you are probably familiar with Koo Koo Kanga Roo. If you aren’t, Butcher Bird Studios would like to change that.
Our beloved Travis Stevens is directing a sizzle piece for their children’s television show. Produced by Linda Morel and written by Tara O’Brien, the interactive dance party duo of Bryan and Neil bring their Koo Koo stylings to a summer camp. We spent a potentially rainy day at the Griffith Park Camp for Boys herding 30+ children into classic scenes with the Koo Koo boys, Kathryn Burns, and Michael Silva. In the end, we skipped the rain and brought the sunshine. We even let Steven Moreno play Director of Photography because he was on such good behavior.
Koo Koo Kanga Roo is an American comedic dance-pop duo from Minneapolis, Minnesota, consisting of vocalists Bryan (Bryan Atchison) and Neil (Neil Olstad). They are often described as “The Beastie Boys meet Sesame Street.” Check them out at kookookangaroo.com.
