The 5 Second Films YouTube channel is sadly slowing down operations at the end of this year. According to the sketch groups’ Twitter account, “We got a movie to make! Plus sketches on Uproxx, top-secret projects, and plus: We just kinda did it all when it comes to 5sf.” While the sketch group will not shut down the channel entirely, its daily uploads will cease as of 2014.
The aforementioned movie is the upcoming, Kickstarter-funded comedy horror film “Dude Bro Party Massacre 3,” which raised $241,071 back in June. 5 Second Films also provides sketches for the site Uproxx, which hosts the content at Uproxx Video and will continue to do so going forward.
Breaking out of their typical five-second format, the 5 Second Films crew are saying farewell to their YouTube channel in spectacular fashion with a two-part finale titled “The Last 5SF.” In the finale, 5 Second Films wages war on the web after being deemed obsolete. In the course of their insane warpath, they are visited by a host celebrity guests and classic sketch characters like The Brilliant Dr. Eye.
Part two of the finale will arrive on the 5 Second Films YouTube channel on December 31.
