How much comedy can you stuff into a 5 second short film?
That is a question that 5secondfilms.com have answered over 1000 times on YouTube with their sometimes witty, sometimes quirky, and sometimes just plain weird videos. the videos may be short, but the payoff is almost always worth it (though sometimes, I admit, I have to replay the video twice or thrice before I get the gag).
This week, the comedy group tried something different, and presented us with Bummer week: five shorts that were meant to pull at your heart strings and make you cringe. They successfully pulled it off, demonstrating not only that they are the rulers of short comedy, but also of short tragedy as well.
So, without further ado, I give you two recent weekly compilations from 5secondfilms: Week in Review #180 (comedy ) and Bummer Week in Review (not comedy ).
BTW, don’t let the name fool you, their videos may only be 5 seconds long, there are so may of them, and they are so addictive, that you can end up watching them for hours at a time.
