The Vine 5 Film Festival: It Just Doesn't Matter

Vine is the cool new toy from Twitter that challenges users to make the most profound work ever committed to video in exactly six seconds. Or at the very least, challenges comedians to bring a little more laughter into this world. On Tuesdays we'll be screening five of the funniest shorts of the past week, until Vine is abandoned for the next new thing.

"Magic Toilet"
By Shira Selkovits

In theory, the idea of a talking toilet is terrifying: I can't even be alone in the bathroom?! Was I in the bathroom when they signed me up for this dystopian future?! But Shira Selkovits demonstrated that if it kind of sounds like Tina from Bob's Burgers, the future might be pretty cool.

"Please Spare Me"
By Jeff Wild

Dinosaurs are unsurprisingly not up to date on how vast the Lego universe is in this day and age of talking toilets. Then again, a Lego thinking it can talk its way out of being eaten by a carnivore is really damn naive.

"Makin Comedy: Ep 1"
By Todd Levin

Writing jokes for Conan day in and day out means that sometimes you'll run out of energy, as Todd Levin is willing to admit through video. Unfortunately, there will probably not be an episode 2. The good news? Dust off that comedy packet!

"Crab"
By Marlo Meekins

You know how they say that after Jaws came out some idiots became afraid of the water? This vine would scare those people to death if they saw it.

"Watchin' Sports Rootin' For a Team!"
By Chris D'Elia

Whitney's Chris D'Elia is a prolific viner, starring in three Vine exclusive series: Excuse Me, Bet'cha Can't Get Closer to a Stranger, and Don't Wear That. Here, D'Elia channels Bill Murray to completely mock most of us for how we spend our time while we wait for the grave, expertly moving the camera around to match his manic energy. Welcome back to film school, Ivan Reitman.
