Whether you pronounce „gif” with a hard or a soft „G”, I think we can all agree that they’re a good/jood way to find entertainment and expression on the internet. So much so that they’ve cast their influence onto music videos, a format that heavily relies on both entertainment and expression. We’re trying a new format this week by using Youtube’s nifty Playlist feature to bring you some of the internet’s most interesting GIF-themed music videos. Which videos made the list? And how do their visual styles reflect gif-culture? Watch the episode and find out!!

This series of videos can be watched in either a playlist or as one whole video. See links for each below:
