A pretty convincing argument against the Stop Online Piracy Act told in the form of a hilarious and intentionally lo-fi animated 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 feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.
While thousands of websites have gone dark today in protest against the Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act, GIF animators on Tumblr have been working hard in their honor.
Here’s the animation from The Oatmeal, which has since blacked out its entire blog in protest.
The gesture and the accompanying animation has turned The Oatmeal into a national trending topic on Twitter, mentioned more than 3,000 times in the last three hours, according to statistics from Topsy.
Fernando Alfonso III served as an early Reddit and 4chan reporter and the Daily Dot’s first art director until 2016. He’s gone on to report at Lexington’s Herald-Leader and at the Houston Chronicle.
