The scourge and blessing of the internet, the animated GIF, turns 25 this year. Compuserve was the first to introduce the file format back in 1987 and from there, its use has exploded into so many various ways. From video clips to animated photographs, the animated GIF has been used in every corner of the internet. To celebrate the glorious file format, someone has put together a video to celebrate the picture and also maybe give you a mild seizure.
According to Kotaku, you can “only celebrate if you call it a “giff”. If you say “jiff”, don’t celebrate, because there is clearly something very wrong with you, and that’s hardly something to celebrate”. And I completely agree.
