The Morning GIF: He-Man meets “The Avengers”
The only thing this GIF is missing is the 4 Non-Blondes hit “What’s Going On.”
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.
A casual stroll through Tumblr is all it takes to see how much The Avengers fandom has come to dominate the GIF world lately.
But what happens when the greatest superhero of ‘80s cartoons meets the hottest superheroes of 2012?
The result is sublime, confusing, bizarre, sexually ambiguous, and hilarious.
This GIF is a takeoff of the classic SlackCircus video of He-Man and the 4 Non-Blondes hit “What’s Going On.” Instead of Prince Adam, it substitutes Thor from The Avengers, with a video-bombing cameo of his brother Loki.
This GIF was originally uploaded at the Brocreate Tumblr, and it has had 8536 notes so far. In another 30 years, who knows where we’ll be? By then GIFs may have soundtracks.
