In case you aren't sure what Vine is, it’s a social media app that lets you create six-second videos. Yeah, I know, the concept sounds quite stupid, but if you combine that with outrageous human creativity, it turns out shockingly well.

Of course, teenage girls of this generation will find some boy to fawn over no matter what website they choose to spend time on, but it seems that Vine has especially caught their attention. The “Boys of Vine” make us laugh and sigh because they’re so far out of reach. Guys like Nash Grier, Matthew Espinosa, Cameron Dallas, Jack and Jack, and Brent Rivera collaborate to make six-second clips that we watch over and over and over. For example, the clip to the left shows Nash Grier getting "made-over" by his little sister Skylynn.
I’m sure most of you know and love Drake & Josh, an awesome Nickelodeon show that was on when my age group was in elementary school. It preceded shows like iCarly and Victorious. Anyway, Josh Peck, who played the cuddly and smart Josh Nichols, is now a star of vine. With a signature “teenage girl” impression that is both offensive and gut-bustingly funny, he has stolen the hearts of Vine users everywhere. I know that he's one of my favorites. Throwbacks to the beloved show like his Oprah vine make my day. Peck is so worth the follow on the app.
My favorite viner is probably Parker Kit Hill, a dancer and comedian. He makes me literally laugh out loud with almost every one of his vines, and I love that he has next to no same. It took me forever to find the vine I wanted to feature because I literally love every single one that he posts. I have like 50 favorites. In my humble opinion that yes, I publish every single day and people continue to read for some unknown reason, he is the unrivaled King of Vine even though someone told him that he looks like a grilled onion.
Like I said before, Vine isn’t only for comedy, though it’s an excellent platform for that. I love some six-second song clips by accounts like Us the Duo. It’s a quick snip-bit of a song that’s fun to listen to but doesn’t take a ton of time like an entire cover would.
One of my favorite types of vine is the animal vine. Pets do the funniest things for the camera, and I love watching them. From a squeaking baby bulldog to an acrobatic cat, Vine literally has everything. If you want to see it, I’ll bet that you can find it.
Who’s your favorite viner, and what’s your favorite vine? Happy kommenting :)
