  • (children) Kids react to Vines!

  • This episode: Thomas Sanders!

  • (narrator) Now the judge will choose the winner.

  • (in video) I can't decide.

  • They're all cute and they're mine now.

  • - What? - (goofy laughter)

  • Oh, that's jacked up.

  • You can't just take dogs away from people.

  • That dude, he's on Vine, right?

  • Did he actually steal the dogs?

  • I would call the cops on him.

  • You don't have to take the final.

  • (students cheer enthusiastically)

  • You can just be jobless and homeless for life.

  • - (in video) Totally worth it, guys! - (laughs)

  • What the heck?

  • That's just a bad choice.

  • That's probably me and my friends.

  • You gonna risk your lives?

  • (soldiers) Sir, yes, sir!

  • - Leave no man behind? - Sir, yes, sir!

  • Does this outfit make me look fat?!

  • - (sympathetically) No! - Yes.

  • (all) No! No! No! No!

  • (cracking up)

  • Okay, these things are hilarious!

  • Story time!

  • (narrator) Little did she know the mysterious figure

  • - creeping up behind her... - (lady yelps)

  • - Oh! (laughs) - (lady giggles)

  • So they just go up to random people and get those reactions?

  • I've seen the narrating people.

  • I know this guy, but I don't know his actual name.

  • Story time!

  • (narrator) The man knew exactly what to do to embarrass his son.

  • - Oh my gosh! - (son groans)

  • (narrator) ...to embarrass his son.

  • - (son groans) - (narrator chuckles)

  • That was pretty funny.

  • He just goes up to somebody random and just does that.

  • Story time!

  • (narrator) Of all of the works of art in this room,

  • - she was the loveliest. - (woman giggles)

  • Oh, that's so nice.

  • (narrator) ...she was the loveliest.

  • - (woman giggles) - Not creepy at all.

  • He was, like, flirting. That was kinda gross.

  • That's what happens when you narrate people's lives.

  • - Good morning! - (birds) Good morning, Thomas!

  • What a beautiful--

  • What the--?! Talking birds!

  • (birds) You can't escape us!

  • What the heck?!

  • What the--?! Talking birds!

  • - (birds) You can't escape us! - (cracks up)

  • Those birds are psychopaths.

  • Show that one again.

  • (ticket seller) Sorry, it's PG-13.

  • (man off screen clears throat) What were you thinking?

  • Oh.

  • - (whimsical chime) - You'll need these!

  • - Ooh-- - (in video) One, please!

  • - (ticket seller) Yes, sir! - That's smart.

  • I feel like that'd be me as a parent.

  • Guess what I've got!

  • (children cheer)

  • - (laughter) - (kids) Yes! Yes!

  • No, it's a box.

  • (crazed laughter)

  • That's what I would do if my kids were too spoiled.

  • That's messed up. That's not fair.

  • Who's ready for a new week of learning?

  • Me!

  • Sorry, nobody's here.

  • Maybe you should just go away.

  • (suppressed laughter)

  • I wonder how long that took to make.

  • If only that works.

  • Guys, we're going to the Grammys.

  • (all cheer)

  • Why're we stopping?

  • (women cheer)

  • - (in video) Granny! - Oh.

  • "The Grannys".

  • That's actually a pretty good trick.

  • Great. Two thumbs up.

  • Show me all of that again.

  • (children) Question time!

  • (Finebros) So have you ever seen that guy before?

  • No.

  • I have not.

  • Yes, on Vine.

  • Yes, I have-- just scrolling through Vine.

  • (Finebros) How would you describe this guy's personality

  • - based on his Vines? - He's weird like me. (giggles)

  • He looks like a happy type of guy,

  • like an outgoing type of person.

  • He's just a hilarious laughter guy.

  • He's weird, obnoxious, and creepy.

  • (Finebros) So his name is Thomas Sanders.

  • Okay.

  • (Finebros) And he has over 5 million followers

  • - on an app called Vine. - That's a lot of followers.

  • Wow, that's a lot of followers.

  • (Finebros) He's one of the most popular people on all of Vine.

  • Why do you think he's that popular?

  • Because he's hilarious!

  • He does funny stuff. That's why.

  • His Vines are so different and creative.

  • It's very formatted.

  • He has so many different types of Vines,

  • as opposed to some of the other Viners

  • who are only popular because of their looks--

  • (fake cough) Nash!

  • (Finebros) So, with Vine, he only makes six second videos

  • 'cause that's how Vine works.

  • Do you think he would be just as funny if his videos

  • - were longer than six seconds? - No!

  • Most of them are pretty clever, so I think it's good

  • that he has short videos.

  • Yes.

  • Yeah, yeah, he would be.

  • Yes, and it would be amazing.

  • Yeah, I think he'd be good if he made longer videos.

  • I think he could. He looks capable enough.

  • (Finebros) Why do you think he and so many people

  • who are popular on Vine don't make longer videos?

  • They usually just stick to their six seconds on Vine.

  • 'Cause they're lazy!

  • Longer videos might be more frustrating and take more of your time.

  • It's sort of hard to produce content that's that much longer.

  • I'm not gonna say that they're easy to make,

  • it's just they take a lot less effort than actually making

  • a whole comedy thing on YouTube or something like that.

  • Maybe because they like Vine and they don't like anything else.

  • I would say loyalty, but you're not really being

  • - necessarily loyal to a person. - (Finebros laughs)

  • You're being loyal to social media.

  • (Finebros) So a lot of people say that kids today have

  • a very short attention span and that's why something like Vine,

  • that's only six seconds, works.

  • Do you agree that kids have a short attention span?

  • Yeah, pretty much.

  • Let's just say my dad agrees.

  • You really shouldn't stereotype anybody, but a lot of kids...that's sorta true.

  • I don't really like when people stereotype kids like that,

  • and I don't think we have short attention spans.

  • I don't know if there are statistics comparing us to other generations.

  • Yeah, because some kids get bored of stuff.

  • (Finebros) Like you right now?

  • - I'm not bored! - (Finebros laughs)

  • (Finebros) So back to Thomas.

  • He makes a lot of different types of these Vine videos--

  • - Do you have more of them? - (Finebros) Hold on, Emma.

  • I'm ready to watch more for the rest of this day.

  • (Finebros) He makes formats like the narrating people on the street,

  • or videos about him one day being a bad parent.

  • Which do you like more-- when they're in a format

  • or when they are different every time?

  • I like ones that are really random.

  • If they're random, people won't really know what to expect.

  • I feel like that might be more funny.

  • I like being able to expect something,

  • and not having to be, "Oh, I hope it's funny."

  • I like when it's just something completely random,

  • but then also, at the same time, it's nice to see a series.

  • I gotta say both because they both have a unique way

  • - to express the video. - (Finebros) Mmm hmm.

  • - May I watch more? - (Finebros cracks up)

  • (Finebros) So a lot Vines he makes are in classrooms

  • - and even with real teachers. - Really?

  • Did the principal know?

  • My teachers would kill me. (laughs)

  • (Finebros) Do you wish you had a classmate that did things like that?

  • No! No, no, no. I would get in trouble.

  • Yeah.
