GIFs + Sound = a Hilarious Video (and Probably Somebody's Media Studies Thesis)

Born of the hive mind of Reddit and the editing skills of Rasta_Pasta, this video combines the manic looping of GIFs with appropriately ridiculous audio clips (contains strong language). 

Born of the hive mind of Reddit and the editing skills of Reddit user Rasta_Pasta, this video combines the manic looping of GIFs with appropriately ridiculous audio clips. These creations are crowd-sourced from the subreddit devoted to the art form. On a meta level, it's a brilliant exploration of the relationship between sound and picture in the fractured digital space of the Internet. On more basic level, it's just funny. Some songs contain strong language.
