The Morning GIF

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’ll feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet. Sometimes the GIF’s will be topical, other times they’ll just be fun.

For our first installment, we thought it appropriate to feature a Mario Bros. themed GIF in honor of video game creator Shigeru Miyamoto, who has been in the news recently for a statement he made about his position at Nintendo. This simple GIF was featured on Reddit Thursday, where it collected more than 4,000 upvotes.
