Lolo Jones gives insight on her Vine

Lolo Jones won track and field gold at the World Championships, but also active on Vine with her quirky videos. This interview will help you understand her vids some more.

“Not every Vine I make is going to have layers of subtext,” Lolo Jones says, and she’s being ironic. Her Vine feed is not known for its artistry or social commentary. It more closely resembles something an overcaffeinated teenager would do. Jones has a lot of energy. She has successfully channeled that energy from track and field to bobsledding, winning a gold medal in the 2013 World Championships.

And she has also channeled it into a self-aware, ironic video commentary in which she projects artistic meaning and artistic intent to her inane Vine posts.

Pretty good. It’s good to see a little self-awareness.
