GIFs are a big part of internet life. Especially when it comes to using them as a reaction to any and everything posted online. If you have a feeling THERE IS A GIF FOR THAT. Well, writer and Twitter user Matthew A. Cherry had a great idea for a thread. He gave us a history lesson on where some of our fave GIFs came from and I have to say, It’s pretty cool to see them in context. Here’s one of the most fun history lessons I’ve had in awhile.
I wanna create a thread called #GifHistory. Send a gif that you want to know the backstory to and we'll try to find the original video.
This gif is from the 1992 American Music Awards where Natalie Cole won the award for Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist. Whitney Houston was in the crowd showing love.#GifHistorypic.twitter.com/FIoXhJ3Ksn
