Synchronized Diving GIF Is the Best Thing to Come Out of the Olympics
Viral| | By Jason Owen
The 2016 Rio Olympics have been filled with memorable moments, amazing rivalries, and heartbreaking disappointments, but perhaps the greatest moment of all isn’t from Rio de Janeiro itself, but from Photoshop.
A GIF (graphics interchange format) uploaded to Imgur by user “exgexg” shows a team of Chinese synchronized divers approaching the end of the board and performing a triple (quadruple?) somersault. But unlike their real-life dive, exgexg photoshopped the divers falling into two tiny Solo cups. It’s truly a marvel in photoshop magic.
Since its upload, the GIF has been viewed more than 11 million times (and counting) and drawing rave reviews from the online community. If this guys doesn’t already have a job in Hollywood, chances are, he will soon.
