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.
This counter-example challenges the typical Cinemagraph GIF, by changing the typical: scene, feel, and object in movement. Cinemagraphs, often display very little movement of a single object to allow for the appearance of the infant loop. The images typically appear relaxing, where the main source of movement comes from water. The scenes are most commonly in a natural environment, with few if any people. In this counter-example, there are many people, but to keep the general idea of the Cinemagraph only one person is moving. The movement is exaggerated compared to the minimalism of the standard Cinemagraph GIF. The scene takes place in the city instead of a rural area, and the panicked pacing of the individual illustrates an anxious mood. The individual who is the focus in the example is a white man, however, in the counter-example the main character is a black woman. The counter-example also has a rainbow filter, which further exaggerates the contrast between the dominant Cinemagraph with a more neutral color pallet. To relate this Cinemagraph even more to current times, the people are spread out and all wearing masks.
