The Vine 5 Film Festival: The Bono Outtakes

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. Every Tuesday we showcase five of the funniest shorts of the past week.

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

"U2 Director's Cut with missing 'Doodlebug' Lyric"
By Ted Travelstead

It is not out of the realm of possibility that Bono would throw in some completely random word in one of his bombastic songs, thinking it would make him seem like one of us mere mortals, the affectatious bastard. That is what makes this a great vine, and why a man who has donated tons of time and money to help those in need all over the world is hated by a ton of people.

"Happy Easter!"
By Nack

In this silent vine, Nack (@juniorshabidoo) documents how stressful Easter can be for a rabbit. Poor thing is sweating in his suit. What a waste.

"Air 50 Cents"
By Erik Bergstrom

Erik Bergstrom is a prolific Viner – just this week he was a Goya conjuring wizard. The comedian in "Air 50 Cents" imagines a dystopian future where even air is monetized, which we all quietly agree is going to happen sooner rather than later. Doesn't mean we're happy about it!

"Sugar Cat: Spring Break"
By Jamie Lee

Jamie Lee introduced Sugar Cat this week, one of Vine's first breakout characters. So far we know that it is shy, dances/cringes to music, not a fan of fish, and doesn't care for the hallway. So basically it's just like a regular cat, only a slightly better additive to a cup of coffee.

"Everyone at the Gas Station is Bill Cosby"
By Will Sasso

There's nothing much to say except that the world would be a much better place if everybody's inner voice sounded like Bill Cosby.

Playing in Theater 2

The Moment It All Turns by Matt Braunger

We've all been there.

For the Soldiers by Chris D'Elia

D'Elia really appreciates the troops.

The Many Faces of Mike Myers by Sean O'Connor

Mike Myers' oeuvre in perspective.

Fabulous by Marlo Meekins

Spoiler: it is really not fabulous at all.
