The Morning GIF: Overly Attached Girlfriend

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.

Ms. Overly Attached Girlfriend is a meme for the ages.

Beatlemania is still going strong forty years after the Fab Four broke up. With Biebermania in full swing, who’s to say when this latest, GIF-tastic meme will ever die?

Canadian songbird Justin Bieber asked for fan contributions on the theme of his single, “Girlfriend.” He could not possibly have anticipated what he got, including the amazing, eerie, and positively NC-17 recording from which today’s Morning GIF comes.

On the one hand, awesome; on the other, creeeeeeepy.

When wondering how to catch your icon’s eye, never discount flaming contact lenses.
