Does it count if it's not a smooth loop? I take off points for that.

I'm trying to understand what Tommy Wiseau is saying and it keeps morphing every few seconds like some kind of audio kaleidoscope

Without question, I believe Rachel Maddow maintains her own LEGO miniworld.

Somehow Peter Jackson will figure out a way to stretch his out to 4.5 seconds.

Distincts. Dis stinks. Some stink more than others stink. But it is not 90% crap, like normal stuff. It is 104% crap. And distincts.

Hey guys I have an idea for a new kind of video sharing where the video is only one frame long but it's really high definition and you get to look at it for as long as you want.

He puts his hand upon his hip, when Jon Hamm dips, you dip, we dip.

I listened to the Hannibal Buress one on loop for 5 minutes, it's great for working to.

Holy hell, there are so many of these. I felt like I had watched (and enjoyed for what they were) lots of these and then there were still like 2000 more, almost all of people I've never heard of and/or didn't really care about. Sorry, guy from Train, I do not care enough about you to watch a 1.5 second video of you doing anything, and that's a really low threshold.

Somebody put a LOT of time and effort into this joke. A lot of time and effort was required for me to figure out it was a joke, but once I did, the tic went away, so there's a happy ending for you.

Ha.

Ha ha.

J.K. Simmons.

If that one doesn't become a hip hop sample, the world is too boring.

Next up: Twitter to reduce it's character count to 20 characters...

It would be hilarious!

When I dip, I expect a nice mouthful of tasty. These are more like, you dip your chip and it breaks off and stays there.

Even better Doug Bayne.

I wish there was a search, or some kind of scrutable organization system. It took me a lot more than 1.5 seconds to finds J.K. Simmons' nostrils.

Is this an April Fool's joke (making fun of Vine, I guess?) or for real? Because these really don't work at all.

Conan O'Brien, Will Ferrell, and Hannibal Burress are pretty funny fellows. They ain't funny here.

I mean.

Some don't, some do. I think El P's is the one I find most memorable, if just for shock value.

And all five Doug Bayne ones are surreal gold. (vimeo)

Thank you for once again proving that Whitney Cummings is about as funny as dental work.

All things considered, I kinda hope they keep doing this.

I want someone to make every single one play at the same time. It would probably sound like HNAAARGH but I think I'd find that kind of soothing.
