Video

Vine Celebrity of the Week: Boston’s Own Jason Hill
Video

Boston resident Jason Hill might better be described as “Viner of the Day,” but only if you can catch him on the right day. Hill has a knack for uploading multiple videos, most of which feature colorful impressions of his friends and family, though he has also tried to captivate the essence of a few celebrities. Hill only posts on Vine every couple of weeks, but he maintains his audience of 112 thousand followers by going a little vine-crazy when he uploads. Within these vine-posting marathons, Hill always incorporates a theme: something he can rant about and the audience can connect to. With a collection of what we’ll call “light-heartedly aggressive” vines, Hill offers commentary on folks in modern society. Sure most of his vines end in him yelling at someone, but it’s all in good fun. More

Vine Celebrity of the Week: Will Sasso
Video

Will Sasso describes himself on Vine as “the actor that played the good guy’s friend in that thing.” This solid, one line description perfectly sums up Sasso’s style; he is clearly capable of intelligent humor, he just isn’t always in the mood for it. When scrolling through the former “MAD TV” star’s vines, one feels the “box of chocolates” kind of effect, since you don’t know what you’re going to get from video to video. Sometimes he introduces his almost two million viewers to his videos while wearing a sweet snap back and throwing up deuces. Other times he dives right into a freestyle jingle, without ever establishing real purpose. The topic, duration, and effort put into each of Sasso’s vines may not be consistent, but one thing is for sure: if he is willing to make a 31-part vine series of him doing an Arnold Schwarzenegger impressions while driving, he is committed.
