I know that when Instagram video kicked off a couple of weeks ago, folks were declaring Vine to be dead since it allowed folks to post up to 15 seconds of video. But I shook my head because I’ve never been here for IG video. All it did was provide people the opportunity to post longer and more boring videos. The 6 seconds of Vine challenged folks to be more creative and self-edit.
Vines are like GIFs and Instagram vids are YouTube videos that couldn’t.
Well, now I can show you why there’s room for the 6 seconds of awesome that Vine provides. People have turned the platform into their version of America’s Funniest Home Videos and I’m so here for it. Check out these 10 hilarious videos. I picked these because each one made me guffaw and cackle.
I will not get any work done as I watch these loop endlessly. Dambit.
1. Mom vs. Snake
LMAOOO!!! Why did she fall to the bed like that and kick her legs?!? I bet she cussed him clean out after that.
2. Erykah Badu vs. Nuns
Erykah wan kill me! HA! Those poor nuns didn’t know WHAT to do as she sang “I am a sinner” while popping that gum. She’s so petty and I love her sometimes for it.
3. Lady vs. Exercise ball and laughing baby
Whoever the hell Johnny Boy is better appreciate that failed attempt! And the mashup of the baby laughing his head off (which is from YouTube) took me over the edge. I could not help but cackle.
4. Presenting Simba
This is the entire point of having children. I support this.
5. Ballad and bodyroll
THAT. DAMB. BODYROLL! I have been SLAYED, LAWD!!!
6. Where’s her parents?
That little girl saw the camera and stole the show. She’s so serious about her dancing! The “Where’s her parents?” is what did it for me though.
7. Ballpit FAIL
Maybe next time, she won’t try to hop her ass into a ballpit that ain’t at Chuck E. Cheese’s. Just Fail.
8. Young Donald’s dance
Why is he so damb cool, doe?
9. Dog vs. stick
LMAOOOOO!!! Poor dog.
10. Baby self-defense
OMG LMAO! This baby is ready to take on the world!
Good times. I officially love Vine. Especially now that they let you reVine videos. As if I need another distraction or time suck in my life.
Still, ADD ME! (do a search for “Luvvie).
So which of these made you cackle the most? Also, feel free to drop links to your fave Vines in the comments.
