Panic! at the Disco just announced their upcoming fifth full-length, Victorious, will arrive September 29. That's, like, right around the corner. Thank god for new music, right?

Well, true Panic! fans know that when frontman Brendon Urie isn't melting our hearts with cool croons, he's...Vining? That's right, the dude is a major player on the six-second social media platform, so we had to ask: How did he get into it? And who are his faves?

Urie told Fuse in an exclusive interview:

"When I joined Vine I was trying to copy comedians that I admired. It was Will Sasso and Chris D’eila. Those were the comedians I followed. I thought Will Sasso was so hilarious; I still listen to Ten Minute Podcast. I’m just a huge fan of his. I think he’s super funny, super goofy so I’d try to copy him. That’s what got me into it: I didn’t know about Vine. I follow Will Sasso on Twitter and I saw that he was making these lemon videos and I thought that was the funniest thing ever. Vine is all about original funny content and I was so into it. Right now I’m mostly into whatever my friends revine, which is a lot of 'fail' videos and memes—which are fun! Vine taught me to be original again, you can really have fun with it, which it what I needed at the time [when I first joined.] It was around the last album, whenever I would get too frustrated I would just turn to Vine. I’d vent my frustrations into a creative pattern. It was really fun."

Well there you have it, folks. When you're done re-Vining all his gags, makes sure to visit our interview celebrating the ten year anniversary of the band's debut studio album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out.
