CURRENT STATE: HUDDLED IN A BALL OF “I JUST CAN’T RIGHT NOW”.
REASON FOR SAID STATE: MY ALL-TIME ABSOLUTE GOSH DARN FAVORITE VINE STAR THOMAS SANDERS IS COMING TO GEEKYCON AND I JUST CAN’T CONTAIN THE FEELS.
Thomas Sanders, if you don’t know, is a Vine star. What’s Vine? Whew, you have been residing under a rock, haven’t you? Wellll… Vine is an app that literally anyone can use to create six-second videos. Why the limitation to six seconds? Well, Twitter, the king of 140-character limitations acquired Vine just prior to its launch in 2012, figuring “society’s short attention span is working pretty well for us already, let’s add short-form video to the mix”. And it has been hugely successful. Partly because anyone can do it. But it takes real talent to become popular and amass MILLIONS of views per vine.
Which is precisely what Thomas Sanders has done. He is famous for doing various series of vines, such as:
- Disney Pranks with Friends (making him a perfect addition to GeekyCon’s Disney Singalong)
- Shout Out Sunday (where he chooses a name among his followers and sings praises to all with that name)
- His Stewie impressions (I don’t watch Family Guy, but his impression is spot-on)
- Narrating People’s Lives (where he narrates strangers on the street with a perfect narrator voice)
- Pokemon Pranks with Friends (similar to the Disney pranks, but simulating various Pokemon abilities)
- Misleading Compliments (WHICH ARE MY FAVE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO FUNNY THE END GOODBYE)
From time to time, Thomas Sanders even graces us with a Harry Potter-related vine. Here are seven of them:
Hogwarts: No More Hallway Traffic!
Hogwarts: A Dangerous Place to Flirt
If Stewie Got to Be a Wizard
The Magic Begins
That’s not the wind…
When something bad happens in a book…
