BLOG POSTED 22.11.18 – AUTHOR. GORILLA



Dearly beloved, join us to mourn the passing of something very close to our hearts: the 6-second comedy wonder that was Vine. Expect a spectacular themed funeral, featuring hundreds of the greatest Vines on the big screen, a lip sync from Monopoly Phonic, performances from The Vanity Project & Jack Evans plus a very special eulogy from vine star Leslie Wai!

Vine was launched in 2013 and instantly became hit across the internet. The concept: a video platform where you can only upload 6 second videos which are filmed through the app. With the explosion of Vine, a whole generation of young, unknowing and sometimes accidental comedy geniuses from all background around the world were introduced to the world by large. However, as ground-breaking Vine was, it heartbreakingly left our lives in 2016. When the news broke, millions were in mourning on Twitter as the #RIPVine hashtag went viral, followed by tens of thousands of threads featuring peoples curations of their favourite vines of all-time. Our event is for those still in mourning.
