Sylvio during an interview with Eric Artell on the "Behind the Vine" show.

Simply Sylvio is a character created and portrayed by filmmaker and surreal artist Albert Birney (born 1982).

Description[]

Sylvio is a gorilla, therefore he doesn't speak. He usually wears a colored sport coat, drainpipe pants, and square sunglasses of varying colors. It is shown that Sylvio has a long-time rivalry against a race of sentient cheese curls who have tried to kill him on many occasions.

He also likes to eat termites (according to friend and collaborator Marlo Meekins).

Vines[]

Sylvio's videos on Vine are not of the norm. They are typically very unnerving and leaves viewers with a sense of confusion. He sometimes collaborates with other surreal Viners such as Nicholas Megalis, Marlo Meekins, and Nick Gallo.
