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.

It’s The Matrix meeting Mortal Kombat: Neo vs Sub-Zero, and as the commenters on Reddit point out, it represents hours and hours of some GIF artist’s life that they’ll never get back.

So worth it, though.

Sub-Zero deserves respect—if only for taking a pretty crappy superpower and making it something those ludicrous Wonder Twins never even dreamed of. 

But Neo…well, Neo is The One. And speaking of numbers, as of this writing, this GIF has 11,271 up votes, 9,598 down votes, and 169 comments on Reddit.

We can hardly wait for Round Two.
