The Morning GIF: Powered-up pets
Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.
Super Mario isn't the only one who gets a boost from mushrooms.
In a new hilarious and brilliant produced video, comic genius Marlo Meekins features a small panting dog dressed in a Mario outfit while sitting front of a backdrop featuring puffy clouds made of cotton balls, hand-drawn mountains, and the iconic ? Block. As the dog sits, a mushroom power-up appears. Once the mushroom falls on the pooch, it magically transforms into an even larger dog.
Meekins captured the video three days ago with Vine, the rising video-sharing network offered by Twitter. Since then, it has been transformed into a GIF featured on Imgur, where it's collected more than 100 comments 5,300 points.
