GIPHY Names Top 25 GIFs of 2017: Lady Gaga's Super Bowl Jump, Nicole Kidman Clapping & More
Punctuating social media posts with GIFs has become the ultimate challenge and, if done properly, the pinnacle of Internet street cred. According to a press release, GIPHY has 300 million users sharing over 2 billion GIFs every day. So, multiple that by 365 days, and you get -- um, a lot of sharing.
This morning (Dec. 7), GIPHY shares its top 25 GIFs of 2017.
Some that made the list include Nicole Kidman caught clapping at the Oscars with what has best been described as "seal hands" (After going viral, Kidman visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May and explained that she was protecting her borrowed jewelry and showed everybody that she really does know how to clap) and Lady Gaga jumping into the oblivion to end her Super Bowl LI halftime performance in February.
