The idea for The Mouth Breathers Discuss The Threat of Kittens came after my first FaceTime chat with my parents. We spent the entire time trying to frame the camera, battling the signal cutting out, and misunderstanding what we were saying, instead of just having a nice conversation on the phone. I then decided to take motion capture of myself talking on FaceTime and translated my movements to Charli and Alex the Mouth Breathers. I then had them read about kittens in German, so nothing could be understood.
