The gang goes reference-crazy in its final installment.
The video series devoted to getting the joke across in five seconds is finally calling it quits. The creators of Los Angeles-based 5-Second Films posted their two-part finale today.
In the first clip, they acknowledge Vine, Twitter’s six-second video service, and how it’s rendered them obsolete. Then they set out on a four-minute quest to “destroy the Internet,” which, according to them, is a planet. During their mission, they discover deadly memes onboard, a “joke vortex,” and a Patton Oswalt cameo. Oswalt starred in many of their shorts. Every fan of the series has a favorite, and this might be mine.
In the second half, they reference one of the most popular 5-Second Films, before giving a nod to even more characters and films in rapid-fire succession. If you’re a fan, you’ll get the references. If not, you’re probably going to be really confused.
Spoiler alert: 5SF isn’t completely done. They’ll still be creating original sketches for Web culture site Uproxx. According to their Twitter account, there will also be new content that’s longer than five seconds, namely their first feature film, the highly anticipated Dude Bro Party Massacre 3.
