The Vine 5 Film Festival: Don't Eat the Cat

Vine is a 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. Every Tuesday we showcase five of the funniest short shorts of the past week.

Your RSS feed might be difficult and not show the videos, but trust us – they are there.

"Notes"
By Jacy Catlin

There's needing to write down a "to do" list. There's needing to leave post-it notes around the house. And then there is Jacy Catlin, who is apparently living out Memento 2, where the Guy Pearce character isn't trying to figure out how to find a murderer so much as trying very hard not to be arrested and get his naked ass shipped to the insane asylum. Christopher Nolan has really lost it.

"Comedy Award"
By Electrolemon

Some numbers are inherently funny, and should be a part of your email address, license plate or twitter handle without irony until you grow old and have grandchildren.

"Rose's Hobby"
By Marlo Meekins

Meekins has a new character named Rose who is rather clumsy. She really needs new glasses. And new arms that don't instinctively push forward. And new legs that do not instinctively move her closer to a bunch of carefully placed plastic cups. I mean, who is going to clean the mess? It isn't going to be me.

"R Rated Wraps"
By Eric Stonestreet

McDonald's has flirted with subliminal advertising in the past. Now it seems that they are just plain flirting. Now that Modern Family has finished filming for a few months Stonestreet can keep monitoring the airwaves for way too sexy food.

"Goodnight Nobody"
By Nack

I'm not going to tell Nack how to do his job – he *is* on the Vine 5 list for a second week in a row – but Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" would have put "Goodnight Nobody" to another level.

Playing in Theater 2

Vine me Vine me Vine me by SNL Weekend Update

If Drunk Uncle knows what Vine is, it can't possibly be cool anymore. Fun while it lasted!

Personal Best by Peter Serafinowicz

Peter Serafinowicz felt the need to show off in his first vine.

Naked Kermit by Jon Friedman

This is great because it is both funny AND potentially devastating to children!

Fantastic Millionaire by Erik Bergstrom

Bergstrom is a millionaire. And he is fantastic.

Never Before Seen Van Halen Aquafina Commercial by Will Sasso

David Lee Roth has to fund his new podcast somehow.
