The 10 Best Vines of the Week: Clay, Dad Problems & Bo Burnham

Can't keep up with the rapidly-exploding Vine craze? Now that the app is available on nearly every smartphone, we'll be your one-stop shop for each week's 6-second masterpieces, be they from newcomers on the scene or established Vine geniuses.

Shortly after becoming available on the Android, Vine has officially become more popular than Instagram. Swapping out vintage filters for the ability to paste clips together in a matter of seconds, users seem to prefer Vine when it comes to expressing themselves, whether it's to make daily comedic vignettes, whimsical stop-motion snippets, or simple 6-second shots of cool moments of their lives (you can now see tiny fragments from all over the world, thanks to Vine.) This week's round-up features a special message from the White House, Bo Burnham being cute, and one Viner who is nothing short of brilliant.

Spotted: Cookie Monster at the White House, by White House Video

This was a smart way to distract from all the Edward Snowden/NSA drama this past week, but @Misnoper had the best jab, saying that CM is “gathering browser cookies for the NSA”.
