Nyan Cat Turns One Year Old, Throws Boozy Birthday Party And fortunately BuzzFeed was invited. The Pop Tarted internet sensation debuted a year ago, and 21st Street Games — publishers of Nyan Cat Adventure — threw a brightly colored soiree. The guest of honor was Nyan Cat creator Chris Torres, whose iconic animation was originally Youtubed on April 5th, 2011.
BuzzFeed's very own super fan,
Ashley Baccam, came in full Nyan Cat regalia.

Celebrating the anNyanversary.
The bar was appropriately rainbow-colored. Little jars filled with Jolly Rancher-infused vodka, Gummi Bears soaked in vodka, Jell-O shots and an array of plain old booze.
Dare I drink the strange purple fluid in the jar?
Oh, I dare. It tasted like napalm and corn syrup.
Chris Torres, being Nyan Cat's progenitor, blew out the candles.
As you can tell by the pure ecstasy written upon Chris' face, the cake was delicious.
Michael Schmidt plays keep away from Ashley. Awwww...she thinks she's people.
Nice set of gams, Nyan Cat! Chatting up Chris Torres is 21st Street Games' Creative Director, Brian Ferrara.
After cake, it was time for the pinata.
There was even a special mask and whacking stick. I'm not creepy at all.
Stepping up to the plate. What form, what grace...I'm admittedly pretty drunk at this point.
But I still manage to connect!
I softened it up for this lady.
Who proceeded to knock it out of the proverbial pinata park.
The pinata (or piNyanta), was filled with Laffy Taffy and, fittingly, Nerds.
Ashley gets the last dance with Nyan Cat.
On the way out of the party, Ryan and I chug God-knows-what out of test tubes. It did not give us super powers. While we did not become super heroes, we did become super obnoxious.
Ashley gets a souvenir. Happy birthday, Nyan Cat! (Thanks to
Amy Sly for all the awesome photos!)
