Vine, Twitter’s micro-video social network, is perhaps the best form of entertainment for Generation Distraction. With a limit of 6 seconds per video, it’s easy for viewers to absorb a diverse array of content in just a few minutes and forces Vine-makers to be concise with their creations. The result is a steady supply of some of the most hilarious, surprising and inventive mini-movies around.
To celebrate this relatively new medium, we'll be doing a weekly compilation of our favorite Vines. This week we have everything from a husky who plays hide-and-seek to a ballad-singing banana, and of course, a bevy of pranks played on strangers. If you see something you like, we encourage you to follow its creator on Vine, and if there’s something you don’t like, well, just wait a few seconds and it will be over.
