Though Vine was founded in 2012, I'd say it really hit it's stride in 2014. Perhaps I say that because I personally discovered some of the funniest Vines out there over the last year. I think I just finally figured out Vine's purposes. Six-second videos aren't hindered by the short length, they're enhanced by it. If you can make something funny in six seconds, then you, my friend, are your very own kind of genius. Nothing makes me more nervous than "Do it for the Vine" Vines, where someone pushes a bride into a swimming pool or something, but also nothing makes me happier than watching a three-year-old realize her life is passing her by.
If you really nail a Vine, something about those six seconds is not only funny, but universal. Oh sure, we can't all do a backflip on a wall, but much like popular Viner King Bach, we do all know that kind of person who makes everything about them: "Yeah, but that backflip, though." That backflip, though, indeed... an entire plot, complete with stunt work, in under six seconds! Yes, we've all probably seen our own lives reflected before us in tiny, unsuspecting, looping videos this year. Here are 14 times Vine explained our lives in 2014.
