9 Vine Accounts Every Guy Should Follow

by: Joseph On  Friday, January 17, 2014

Vine user Keelayjams knows that there’s more to Vine than just jokes, and he takes an experimental, mindbending approach to Vine while still being pretty funny (I guess humor is a natural byproduct of videos that can only be 6 seconds long). He’s been billed as an “Experimental Vine Artist,” and most of his videos bear that lofty title out.

    Vine Accounts Every Guy Should Follow

    \"vine

    So you got yourself a Vine account. That’s great, except for one thing: Who the heck are you supposed to follow? You might have a few friends or loved ones that make the cut, but beyond that it can be pretty rocky terrain for you to navigate alone. Luckily, you don’t have to, because here are 9 Vine accounts that are pretty much automatically worthwhile. They run the gamut from funny to surreal to humorously surreal, so take a look. Then you can start making your own Vines and participating in the discourse and whatnot. Welcome to 2014.

    Rob Whisman

    \

    Rob Whisman churns out a lot of content on Vine every day, but even at his workman’s pace he manages to stay funny and creative most of the time. You can check out his Vine profile here, if the above video doesn’t have you convinced (or if you somehow haven’t seen Fight Club).

    Electrolemon

    \
    \
    \

    Another hilarious Vine user can be found here, and he goes by the name Electrolemon. He’s made a lot of Vines but my particular favorite is the one above. It might just be because I’m a sucker for Curb Your Enthusiasm, but I kind of doubt that’s the case.

    Jonnysun

    \
    \
    \

    If you’ve ever wondered about the inner life of video game characters (and who hasn’t?), then Viner Jonnysun might make for an enlightening follow. Many of his Vines follow the same character, a guy in a video game who has limited control over his movements. If you think about it, aren’t we all just video game characters being controlled by an unknowable player we call “God”? (No)

    ConnerO_Malley

    \
    \
    \

    In addition to just being funny, there’s another way to make your Vine account an essential follow: Be an actual insane person. That’s the ethos followed by Mr. ConnerO_Malley, whose specialty is going up to people in ostentatiously expensive cars and harassing them. This is the kind of class warfare I can really get behind.

    Ted Travelstead

    \
    \
    \

    Another Vine user who expands the possibilities of the form is Ted Travelstead. His claim to fame on Vine is his “Talking Twins” series, which recently reached its 120th installment. As the name suggests, it chronicles the conversations of two twins, one of whom is getting pretty tired of the other’s whimsical shenanigans.

    Marlo Meekins

    \
    \
    \

    It almost seems redundant to include Marlo Meekins on a list of essential Vine accounts to follow, since she’s so massively popular on there already. But unlike a lot of popular Vine users, her work remains funny, unique, and intensely weird. Just check out the above sample if you don’t believe me.

    Lisa Bizzle

    \
    \
    \

    Lots of Vine users dabble in stop-motion animation, but one of the most adept at it is Liza Bizzle, whose stop-motion animated and claymation Vines have earned her a reputation as one of the most creative people on Vine. Don’t worry, she does funny stuff too.

    Iggy Pop

    \
    \
    \

    It’s possible that one of the reasons you can’t decide who to follow on Vine is because you get overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of videos posted over the course of a day. For a change of pace, consider Iggy Pop, who only has two videos currently on his Vine account (not counting that weird Christmas greeting that doesn’t seem to be there anymore). But this is The Iguana we’re talking about, so you know every time he does post a video it’s going to be worthwhile. Or horrifying.
