2015 was the year of the GIF. Why, you ask? To name a ton, we had Magic Mike XXL, Super Saiyan, Office Monkey, our very own GIPHY CAM, Hotline Bling, Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf ("Just Do It!" and #ALLMYMOVIES), Confused Travolta, VMAs, Donald Trump, and the upcoming STAR WARS movie! Did anyone else get tired just from reading that?
What did we learn from all these trends? We learned that the internet is never predictable. People will use their creativity to create some of the most awe-inspiring GIFs and all you can do is sit back and laugh, belly out in your undies. We won't say much more but we can definitely show you. Here are our favorites!
