It may seem unlikely that a video would be able to make you laugh in just 5 seconds but their 400k subscribers would disagree. The founder of the group was Brian Firenzi who created this group with the people with who he shared house, members of this house were directors, actors, and writers giving them all the skills they needed to make a successful YouTube show. The house was in Silver Lake, Los Angeles and as the channel started to grow it attracted more and more talented individuals who got involved with the channel. Their first 5-second film was ‘Chivalry is Dead’ in which a man refuses to hold a door for a woman. They were inspired to make this channel by a competition in which people could submit 5-second commercials for Cadillac Motor Company.
