Rig Wire Realistically

Hi, I just wanted to know if anyone could help me. I am trying to rig a wire like mesh, in a way that i can animate it. It’s like an antenna, but i want to move it in cartoony ways. Any tutorials or help would be much appreciated.

Wire antenna, like this one?


I think he wants it to twist and bend. I would recommend using a 3D curve object, and manipulate it either using shape keys, or hooks.
(edit) if you need to use a mesh, check out spline IK.
