He is there to pump you up. Next up, a video of Ronald Reagan driving: "Well Nancy, I'm going to the store to get more jellybeans." Then, Johnny Carson: "This traffic is weird, wild stuff."

I would have laughed, but it would have just reinforced my wife's belief that I have the mentality and sense of humor of a 14 year old.

I intend to steal that Accord line.

HuronBob: Well I went ahead and laughed anyway, and then sent the link to my wife. This did, in fact, reinforce her belief hat I have the mentality and sense of humor of a 14 year old.

Then she laughed too.

We got married for a reason.

:-) my (actually 14-year-old) daughter and I both enjoyed this, thanks.

The bit where he's in Canada is taken about two blocks from my grandmother's house, in White Rock, BC, just north of the Canada-US border. It's at the top of a hill looking due south, towards Birch Bay, WA, and Orcas Island is in the distance.

About 50 years ago my grandmother painted a picture from almost exactly the same spot (that's Orcas Island in the distance, bisected by a telephone pole). I am pretty sure the tree, a grand old Douglas fir, is the same as in the video.

Kind of crazy. I've spent a lot of time in White Rock, but since she died I will go there no more if I can help it.

I love this. The lemon compilation made me laugh so hard I cried. Still can't see/think about lemons without remembering it!

I have a cold and have had very stressful yet loopy day thanks to a lot of work and cold medicine and I'm laughing so hard at the lemon video that I think I broke something.

KA-BOOM! Hilarious. I'll never exit a parking garage the same way again.

That's fantastic KokuRyu! That bit is also just off the street from a place my girlfriend and I shared between 1999-2002 on Victoria Avenue. We also graduated from the old Semiahmoo Secondary in the late 1980s. Cliched to say it, but small world.

Does anyone have any background on how the Vine videos were put together? Did he just post the different clips chronologically so it appears to be a narrative, or did he do some video editing first, and then upload?

I should not have watched that when I had to go to the bathroom...

I thought having him sing along to "Sweet Caroline" was inspired...
