I appreciate these, especially because there's no incentive to draw the joke out for three minutes longer than is absolutely necessary. If it's funny, we get right to the point, and if it's not, we've only wasted five seconds.

Love this: "Wasting your time, but not very much."

Thanks for posting.

I really liked "The Oswalds". I've watched it at least 20 times already.

Lots of good, clean fun here. Good find.

Like that critique of the Ramones: you try to hate any track but there just isn't enough time.

Not to be confused with 5 Second Movies, which are brief synopses of original widely-distributed films roughly five seconds long.

One shot gags, without the tiresome student film around it! Excellent!

An incentive sadly lacking at SNL.

I think they're also on Vimeo.

Also, thanks for the Ovablastic tip. There's some great stuff there that I've never seen before.

This is done by some friends of mine! Exciting to see them on MeFi. I am actually in one of these, but I'm not saying which one.
