One of Avery Monsen’s best vines only contains two words: “hello” and “hey.” It’s what happens around those words that nails exactly what Vine is good for. You get stuck in a loop with him.
The LA-based Monsen’s also a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, has appeared on “30 Rock,” and co-authored “All My Friends Are Dead,” a very dark kids’ book for misanthropic adults. He’s currently involved with a Kickstarter project to create an emoji Ouija board, a logical conclusion to creating 100 new emoji, which, sadly, have not been adopted into the traditional emoji template. Most recently, Monsen has been making vines for SundanceTV and finding creative ways to highlight their programming.
“They’ve been great to work with,” he told the Daily Dot. “I was hesitant at first to make any sponsored Vines, but then I saw that they’d let me do the same weird stuff that I do already. Also, I’m poor and it’s hard to say no to people offering you money for silly little videos.”
