The Twitter Reaction To Last Night's Camden Chaos Was Fantastic
"There's maybe 3 people in that whole episode that I'd help in a Zombie Apocalypse"
Last night, Camden Chaos on RTÉ 2 – part of the station's consistently brilliant Reality Bites series – spent 48 hours on the Camden mile in Dublin, and the results were every bit as bizarre as one might have expected.
Good bizarre or bad bizarre? Well, it seems the audience was slightly split in that regard... according to Twitter anyhow.
First off, there was this hypnotic Vine, which we're just going to leave here
Then there was disagreement on whether the show was too short... or too long
Liked the genuineness of the people on #CamdenChaos but it's 30 minutes too long and the late 80s/early 90s graphics & music need a rethink.— Emma Hynes (@ELHynes) April 8, 2015
Audience members of a certain vintage (sorry guys) were confusing the Camden Mile with Memory Lane...
If it was 10 years ago, I prob would've ended up on #CamdenChaos. Lived in The Palace every weekend haha.— Aislinn O'Toole (@AislinnOT) April 8, 2015
Had to watch #CamdenChaos through my fingers, was like a very long flashback.— Keith Walsh (@KeithWalsh2fm) April 8, 2015
Getting flashbacks to college (and early work) days... #camdenchaos— Martha Kearns (@marthakearnss) April 8, 2015
#camdenchaos is making me very nostalgic for Fridays in The Palace 2006-2008.— Caoimhe (@caoimherrr) April 8, 2015
Dancing Noel, naturally, came in for particular praise
Noel the rain regular is like the dancing priest from Fr.Ted #CamdenChaos— Patrick Lynn (@LynnyQQ) April 8, 2015
There was this phrase that can be used for just about anything.
#CamdenChaos ... Only in Ireland....— Fiona O'Reilly (@ooblezooble) April 8, 2015
Richie Breev knows the value of a good Irish stew in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse...
There's maybe 3 people in that whole episode that I'd help in a Zombie Apocalypse, Gerry you're safe. #CamdenChaos— Richie Bree (@RichieBree) April 8, 2015
... but it soon became all too much for him
No. #CamdenChaos— Richie Bree (@RichieBree) April 8, 2015
And ultimately, nobody quite summed it up quite like Joe Carlyle...
This is why we can't have nice things. #CamdenChaos— Joe Carlyle (@JoeCarlyle) April 8, 2015
