Here at the Daily Dot, we have an unofficial tradition of sharing GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you into the circle. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Comedian Andy Richter may not realize it, but presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is his long-lost twin brother.

On Tuesday’s Conan, Richter and host Conan O’Brien impersonated the former speaker of the House and his wife Callista to a roaring crowd. Richter donned a gray wig while O’Brien slapped on some red lipstick and a blond wig.

The video has collected more than 900 likes on Facebook and has been turned into three popular GIF animations on the Conan Gifs Tumblr. In just 22 hours the animations have collected more than 33,000 notes. Here’s one of the GIFs below.
