When talented strangers on the internet come together to create art, it can be a beautiful thing. Case in point: a bunch of imgurians from the “High Quality Gifs” community have recreated Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” music video using their high quality .GIFs talents. Including appearances from Rick and Morty, Ace Ventura, Nigel Thornberry some very unique graphics, and, of course, Bill Murray, the video is off the damn chain. Take a look!

Here’s the concept’s creator, hero0fwar, describing the process of making the video:

“This project was thrown out to a group of Original Content (OC) creators on imgur and reddit. I originally was hoping to get four or five of us on this project and ended up with seventeen of us. We divided the video down into sections and each person was assigned a segment. Everyone was given full creative freedom with their clips with the single rule of not messing with the time allowed per clip. Below you are seeing the final project broken down into .GIFs. This was a silly idea I had one night and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Each creator is credited under their .GIF, also a shout out to @matt01ss for taking all of the final videos and composing them all together for us.”
