A picture says a thousand words. Moving pictures running in loops do even more so than that. GIFs have become the new medium to satiate the lust of meme-addicts. These moving pictures were used so extensively that even Facebook and WhatsApp made their platforms GIF-compatible. Hell, even media websites like Buzzfeed, Mashable and ahem, InUth use popular GIFs to augment their stories.

GIFs have become more of a necessity now, to gain more traction from readers, this year more than ever before. 2016 witnessed the advent of the ample usage of these moving pictures and thanks to GIPHY, we now have a list of the most popular GIFs from this year. From adorable animals behaving like humans to pop culture and politics (American), they have all made it to the top 25 list.

It’s a bit sad that the GIF of Leonardo DiCaprio’s reaction to Lady Gaga brushing past him at the Golden Globes only made it to number 7 but, the ones that made it to the top were certainly more deserving. Check out the entire list of the 25 most popular GIFs of 2016 below:
