“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.
