The most popular Vines usually fall into two categories -- pure goofiness or impressive stop motion and/or special effects. But this week's Vines have shown some creative deviation from the rules, with 6-second horror films becoming more common. And one user did something far more terrifying -- film his girlfriend breaking up with him.
In other news, Hayao Miyzaki announced his retirement, which has started a Vine trend in his honor. And Fashion Week looks like it'll be the inspiration for many a Vine this season. Let's take a look:
