Will Sasso Climbs the Vine With His Six-Second Videos
By: iO Staff , February 14, 2013
We here at iO are admittedly neophytes to Twitter's video counterpart Vine, but so far we like what we see. The app - which works only with iPhones currently - allows users to post six-second video clips that can be as simple or as complex as one wants them to be.
There are a few bugs: some videos are slow to load or don't load at all, and of course Vine came under fire for users uploading highly questionable content (eh, porn) as TechCrunch reported here, leading to a 17+ age rating for those wanting in on the fun.
But despite those issues Vine is highly addictive and we've been amazed at the creativity those making videos have had like this one (make sure to turn on the sound for all of these):
While it is still early in the Vine game, one of our favorite content generators so far has been Will Sasso ("Three Stooges"; "$h*! My Dad Says"; "Mad TV") who has brought us a number of funny bits, including what it would be like if you were driving in a car with Arnold Schwarzenegger:

But our favorite has to be this gem that Sasso shared earlier this morning in which he is confronted by either a street lamp or UFO. It's pretty juvenile, but it's also laugh out loud funny and shows just how much fun you can have in six seconds or less.
