Details

we have a messaging app for which we want to introduce a daily publication with a a screenshot of funny conversation that supposedly happened on the app.
It is very similar to http://www.damnfunnytexts.com/ (e.g. http://www.damnfunnytexts.com/2809/lil-marco/). Every day we'd post a bit to our followers of a funny conversation that happened on the app. Your job is to create these bits.

**about the app**
the experience with the app is best described in this video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oybqkseos1z6vk4/2014-08-04_22-36-55.mp4
it's a messenger app which auto-suggests gifs for any messages you type.

**what's needed**
you need to provide short bits of conversations that supposedly happened on the app. these bits must be funny and/or creative with viral potential. you have full control of the personalities and their messages. the bits should be up to 5 messages long.

**details**
-- we meant the app for teenagers and young adults, so keep that in mind when writing your bits.
-- the app is focused on gifs now, so your bits should incorporate gifs naturally
-- your bits must be hilarious, our quality standard is very high. if hired we'd always ask you to prioritize quality over quantity.

**how to apply**
we typically have a large number of applicants, so you are asked to submit you first bit as a test. you can submit it via this link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ZJzwBRr8e8u9w6M5zbXQuYqYYdrurpmSpayaUGLM8MU/viewform
-- you will mostly be evaluated based on what submit. if the bit you submit is unoriginal and/or is not funny, we won't proceed to work together don't take this screen lightly
-- you can submit more than one bit (but, please, not more than 3)
-- if you think the bit you came up with as a test is too funny to be given out for free to us, submit it partially (e.g. first 2 phrases) and mention it in your application

**some ideas on where to start**
-- relationships is always a good topic

-- mimic celebrities/movie character conversations
