They explained in the BGG TV videos that the "5 Minutes of Fun" refers to that the rules explanation takes only 5 minutes, the BGG crew debated whether that can ever be considered fun though.

That's a lame explanation.

The explanation I received from AEG, was that this line of games allows you to get to the fun (after setup and rules) in just 5 minutes.

In other words, in less than 5 minutes players can be playing the actual game and having fun, instead of still setting up and listening to rules.

That's exactly right, Dave. Though most of the games take 30-45 minutes, which is still great for a casual game while having a beer or coffee, the theme is that it only takes 5 minutes to learn the game and start having fun.

Shouldn't the tag line be "5 Minutes to Fun" then?

I don't think the 5 minutes are to be taken literally. It just means that the game is very short.
