Thomas Sanders has been doing Vines in which he narrates people's lives for them, often surprising the subjects with what is actually happening. A 2m30s compilation gives you a taste of what he does.

Some of those are adorable, but the wedding proposal one was ... yeah. You want to not *actually* fuck with people's lives as you do this sort of thing.

The old guy giving a thumbs up while picking up chicks is great

I love how people just... go with it. It's probably some pavlovian response to hearing Narrator Guy voice that we feel compelled to act it out.

The quick-witted are the most amusing. I think I'd freeze like a deer in headlights.

That little boy running off "NOOOOOOO" and the dad who embarrasses his kid are amazing.

The proposal one was funny but the almost kiss one was way better. Heh.

I'm skeptical that some of these are real. The 'butt scratching' one seems absolutely fake, as do several others.

your favorite Vine sucks!

If I listen to nightvale, cecil narrrates my life in my head for a few days afterwards.

Seems staged to me. I put my money on viral marketing.

MoTown: we get it all out in 2 minutes 30.

These are funny, but I'm convinced that there's some degree of coordination in many, if not all of them. That doesn't diminish the video, I enjoyed it.

Butt-scratching guy looks over at his girlfriend at the exact moment she says the final "what?" Like he knew the line was coming?

Some are obviously staged, some are obviously not.

I love vines. They're like the twitter of sketch comedy.
