This counter-example challenges the typical Fandom/Reaction GIF, through pointing out how we say we reacted compared to how we actually react. In the example, the typical fandom reaction GIF is a short clip of a character where the individual displays exaggerated movements. This lol Fandom GIF would typically be used when someone responds to something funny on a text. You might send the laughing mouse in response to a joke a friend sent, but it is unlikely that you actually laughed out loud. In the counter GIF, Jerry, the mouse shows, little reaction to a joke sent to him by his friend reacting with just a small smile. However, even though his reaction was small, he replies with exaggerated emotions. When using GIFs, we allow them to embellish our actual feelings.
