Many years from now, several dozen students will shuffle into a classroom and take their seats before their hologram teacher appears and begins giving that day’s lesson plan, brought to them by the Taco Bell and Geico Department of Education. Holo-Teach 3000 will instruct them to open their iTextbooks and turn to the chapter on American history that documents meaningless things that we wasted a lot of time on.
And that, my friends, is when our great-great-great grandchildren and their alien robot keepers will learn about the Great GIF Pronunciation Debate of 2013. I assume they’ll all look at each other with confused looks on their faces before they move on to the chapter about “Chocolate Rain”.
But now that lesson might be a bit clearer, thanks to YouTube artist Jonathan Mann, whose “Song a Day” project has been going strong every day since January 1, 2009. Yesterday’s song (No. 1,602) was entitled, “Don’t Say GIF”, and it poetically tackles the incredible debate that we’ve been having this week.
I guess you could say this topic is the GIF that keeps on giving! HIGH FIVE GIF PARTY!
