Make an animated .gif of something pop-culture centric. This could be animating a celebrity, part of a music video, or a TV show/movie. It doesn't even have to be from today... head back into the annals of history and pull out something that used to be pop culture back in its day.

For best effect, I suggest using at least 4 frames to create the animation.
