The Internet is a funny place. Do pretty much anything, and someone, somewhere is going to turn it into an animated GIF. Because there is a law written somewhere that pretty much legally binds us all to this rule.


This week, crafty Internet surfers seemed inspired by the news on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, but I tossed in a few of my own creations, too. Because seriously, I might get arrested otherwise. This is not a joke. (This is a joke.)

Let's start off with the most hilarious takes from a really messed up Sesame Street game on Vinesauce. Elmo?! Grover!?! What the hell are you doing?

Hannes Greyling imagined and illustrated how Pokémon would use their powers to relive boredom on an island.

I don't think you realize how deadly those chairs in WWE 13 can be.

Thank God we for Battlefield 3 and the beautiful glitches its online community find.

Pedro M. Filho's animated a**hole dog from Duck Hunt is intimidating.

Animated Pokémon sprites would sure look cool on the 3DS boxes of Pokémon X and Y.

And just a reminder for you this weekend: the giants in the recently debuted anime series Attack on Titan are not just horrifying, but they can also dance really well.

Bumped into GIFs during the week that are way cooler? Hit the comments and post them!
