A brief history of the GIF in claymation

Let’s say it together, GIF. It’s pronounced Jif, just like the peanut butter brand. Ok, now that we have that out of the way, go ahead and chuckle at this clever stop-motion short history of the GIF file. Going all the way back to the stone ages of computers in 1987, this video will sum up everything you need to know about Graphics Interchange Format files in less than two minutes. It’s well worth the time.
