In Tee Ken Ng's amazing animated Vine, a projected bird flies around a room:
And then we have Marlo Meekins, who works in TV animation in LA and is a self-proclaimed "Bigshot Vine Performer/Artist". This one's called "Citizen Kanine," and she deserves an award for the title alone.

Musician RedFoo shows off his (very) funny side in this goofy scene involving a set of lost keys.
