The Most Fun TV GIFs To Make In 2013: A GIF Maker's Guide

Webster’s defines an animated GIF as “a graphics image that moves” (seriously). Earlier this year, the good folks at UPROXX decided to give me blogging powers as an outlet to post GIFs to my heart’s content. So I thought, instead of the typical “best of” list to close out the year, why not give you guys a bit of commentary on some of my favorite ones to make. Cool? Cool.

Couple of notes:

  • While a year in review post should should be a context clue for “spoiler alert,” the last two pages in particular have heavy Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad spoilers.
  • This is as good a place as any to note that The New York Times profiles GIF makers now. I’m hoping there’s a snarky New York Post headline in my future.
  • Most importantly, this post serves as an excuse to re-post Pete Campbell falling down the stairs.

Pete And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Season

So many bad things happened to Pete Campbell this past season of Mad Men. I also got a new favorite Alison Brie GIF and a reason to be on Team Benson. Hopefully they end next season with a bear attack.
