Behind Instant Cosby, the land of a million Bill Cosby GIFs
Simple office hijinx led to a site that’s now the Internet’s premier purveyor of animated Bill Cosby GIFs.
How did Daniel Strabley create the land of a million Bill Cosby GIFs? Chalk it up to simple office hijinks.
“I sit next to this guy John,” the Chicago-based designer explained to the Daily Dot. “Any time one of us says something stupid, the other guy will send over a Bill Cosby GIF.
Easy, right? Strabley said that the site’s seen more than 155,000 “Cosbys generated” in the past day alone.
That’s a whole lot of Bill Cosbys, and it raises the question of whether Strabley’s got a favorite.
“There’s one where he’s wearing a sweater with a race track on it,” he said. “And in the GIF, this guy is actually running across the sweater. It’s very funny.”
To be fair, we think the same’s true of Bill Cosby.
