Four out of the five branded Vines we have chosen for their inventiveness, and originality, this week focus on spring and summer activities. Sony in particular, packed an extraordinary amount of fun into its allocated six seconds, including the set up and cooking of a barbecue, and then watching it all back. Phew! Elsewhere, Intel shows you how you can take your laptop on holiday with you, The Home Depot continues to demonstrate how easy gardening can be, and Ford recreates 'Gone in 60 Seconds' with a teeny, tiny Mustang.

Best Branded Vines of the Last Seven Days

#1 Sony Electronics

A fantastically executed Vine from Sony this week, one in which it shows off the myriad properties of the HandyCam. Love the detail that's gone into this, particularly the shadow from the arm that's blocking the screen.

#2 Subway

Not entirely sure about Subway's assertion that including cucumber in your sub will cool you down on hot days, but fair play for them for taking to Vine to promote the idea.

#3 Intel

It's that time of the year where people's thoughts turn to their big annual holiday, and the prospect of a couple of weeks away somewhere far from home. Intel turns an Asus computer into a handy tablet so you can take all the fun of the internet with you (including work emails, sorry about that).

#4 Home Depot

The Home Depot carries on with their campaign to get us all outdoors and gardening this spring. Even the smallest of plots can sustain some potted plants, especially these ones that appear to look after themselves.

#5 Ford

Remember the scene in 'Gone in 60 Seconds' where Nic Cage drives his Shelby GT500 Mustang over some bridge or other? Well, Vineographer Yves Das teamed up with Ford to re-create it in stop-motion, as part of the car firm's 2015 Mustang campaign.

Thanks to our friends at Unruly for the suggestions.
