This Week On Vine: NBA, NHL, MLB, #StandWithWendy, “Scrubs” Duet & More
This week Vine saw a lot of dunking, batting, scrumming and serving – as sports Vines collectively dominated the leaderboards. But Hollywood had its own moments, as did Texas state senator Wendy Davis and her filibuster.
We love this vine from NHL as the Chicago Blackhawks went 1-0 up in a recent match. It captures the moment and the elation of fans perfectly, giving you a behind the scenes view of the action in 6 seconds like never before.
Like with the Chicago Blackhawks, this vine by the Official RFU captures the exact moment when England were crowned winners of the IRB Junior World Championships after beating Wales 23-15. Congrats!
There was also a lot of interest in the NBA draft, with the people sharing clips as the announcements were made.

With the basketball, rugby and ice hockey, we can see that sports and Vine seem to be a perfect match.
Vine also continues to lead the way in citizen journalism. It played an important role in breaking news when Texas state senator Wendy Davis spoke for nearly 11 hours at the Texas legislature in order to filibuster a controversial bill that would regular abortion clinics in the state.
These clips, including one retweeted by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, captured her supporters rallying outside the senate doors.
In film and television news, Johnny Depp who plays Tonto in Jerry Bruckheimer’s $250m hit ‘The Lone Ranger’ was at the world premiere recently at the Disney Adventure Park in California. Here he is getting the full movie star treatment with shouts and flashbulbs aplenty. He even manages a chuckle!

Instagram Video Vs. Vine
Finally, there has been some debate this week about the impact on Vine of the recently launched Instagram video (our Brandgrams site features some examples), but as a number of professional Vine creators have noted, Vine still leads the way in recording creative stop-motion animations such as this LiteBrite animation from Target.
