The Iconic Vines You Need in Your Life

Vine was launched in January 2013; this streaming service allowed only six-second clips to be uploaded. However, these six-second clips became so powerful and iconic for our generation; everyone could relate to a specific vine that could have them literally rolling on the floor laughing. Now Vine may have died at the beginning of 2017, but the iconic vines live on through every person they have ever made laugh. Here are some of my fellow freshmen at DePauw’s favorite vines and why. For me personally though, my all-time favorite vine is the Harry Potter/Thomas the Train vine; now it may not be the most iconic vine, but it is definitely worthy of recognition ~https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8EQM1ekmd4~ for the sole reason that every time I watch it, no matter what mood I am, I will laugh till I am crying!
