This week's Black Friday top Vines: Verizon and Lowe's

Marketing, with the help of social media experts Unruly, showcases three must-watch branded Vines, featuring a handy wooden hand, super charged phones and a musical shelf.

Once the preserve of our neighbours across the pond, Black Friday's popularity has spread and retailers are gearing up for an infux of bargain hunters looking to find the best deals on stocking fillers for the coming festive season.

This week's Top Vines include three great gadgets which any technophile would be happy to find laying beneath their tree.

First up we have a snazzy Vine from Verizon, demonstrating the high speed charge capabilites of its new phone range DroidTurbo (15 minutes charge for up to 8 hours life). Although Verizon is not alone with high speed charging - HTC has announced a similar charging time for its soon to be released high speed charger for its Snapdragon processor phones - I don't see anyone else making awesome Vines.

One company which knows how to make Vines is Lowe's. The retailer has produced a handy Vine to advertise the Black Friday reductions on the Dremel 200 Rotary Tool #lowesblackfriday. Hand-ception comes to mind.

The last Vine is again from Lowe's. This effort features a speaker disguised as a shelf (don't ask). Smashing idea, but keep it away from grandma's urn.
