Absence of the Towels, a YouTube video by 5-Second Films, is a dose of humor perfect for those who do not always want to commit to watching long videos. The YouTube video starts out with a guy in the shower who realizes that he doesn't have a towel hanging on the rack. He then runs past the kitchen naked, to the dismay of his roommate.

The Absence of the Towels video is funny because of its absurdity. The concept of making a five-second film is an interesting one that works well in the digital era. I also think the restriction of having to make a film in five seconds brings out the creativity of the producers. Definitely worth the time.
