The Wire Getting Serious About the GIF Game, Thanks to a Robot
Share

Written by : Tom George| 0 | Fashion

The Wire  predated Tumblr’s surge in popularity by a year or two, so it sort of missed out on complete obsessive GIF coverage. (Google ” Orange Is the New Black  gifs ” for comparison; that show’s been out for a month.) There is one really great, thorough Tumblr about HBO’s iconic drama, but  this new one is taking things to another level — a level where a bot auto-creates one arbitrary Wire  GIF per hour . Gawker  astutely calls the combo of randomness and proliferation  ” a perfect parody of internet fandom but also, maybe, its ultimate expression.” See a few of the GIFs after the jump.
