We can’t skip Monday, but we can give you a moonwalking pony

This pony can moonwalk. Your argument is invalid.

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.

Having a rough start to your week? Wish you could rewind and start Monday over again later? Sorry, we can’t help you with that, but here’s a moonwalking pony.

You might’ve noticed we’re pretty big fans of Michael Jackson’s signature move—partially because it’s awesome, but also because it makes a consistently awesome GIF. If you want to make your own, now you can, thanks to an ad campaign by called The Pony Mixer. Pick a theme (punk, hip-hop, boy band, Bollywood, etc.—editor’s pick: “The Final Countdown”), crank up the groupies, trick out the lighting, and see your pony go.

From there, you can turn your pony’s music video into a GIF with our simple how-to guide—like Tumblr user Soundtrack for Lovers did with this one, to the tune of 51,257 notes—and all of a sudden it doesn’t feel so much like Monday after all. You’re welcome.
