These Are The 13 Gifs That Absolutely Dominated The Gif World In 2019 According To Giphy

Whether you’re team GIF or team JIF, it doesn’t matter, the animated shorts speak to all of us. Uniting group texts, Slack channels and email threads alike with their humorous content, we’re all obsessed with them. So, naturally, when Giphy revealed its top 25 most-viewed GIFS of 2019, we had to share the very best with you all. In a time when words just aren’t enough, GIFs did all the talking for us. The list features a healthy dose of headshaking “Nopes” as well as a good amount of Keanu Reeves to maintain balance, have a look at the top 13. To see the full list, click here.

1. And I Oop by Jasmine Masters 

419.1 million views. This was the best meme of 2019. Period. The iconic drag queen from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7 is the reigning queen of internet humor. 

2. Angry by Shameless

with 382.1 million views is all of us. She expresses our disapproval, disgust and anger towards basically everything/everyone. 

3. Say Hello by Nick Jonas

We really wouldn’t know how to explain the fact that Nick Jonas got nearly 300 million views. Guess his way of saying ‘sup’ really summed up everyone’s mood this year?

4. Happy by Samm Henshaw

“Wake up and get yourself to church Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”

5. Great Job by Bounce TV

“Thumbs up” consistently ranks high as a term users are searching for on GIPHY and Carl Payne’s (from Bounce TV’s Last Call) is a great one!

6. Happy Cheering by Bluesbear

It’s cute, it’s wholesome and it’s happily cheering on you. What else do you need in a positive GIF?

7. Keanu Reeves’ Thank you by Netflix

Keanu’s role in Always Be My Maybe was VERY much loved by fans. The movie was super popular and seeing Keanu let his hair down and show his sillier side made everyone love him even more than they already did… if that was possible.

8. I love you by Mia Page

“Love” is by far the most popular emotion searched and shared on GIPHY. So it’s no surprise that this sweet animated GIF is included in this list.

9. No Way “smh” by Desus & Mero

The Kid Mero —one half of the Bodega Boys, who host a popular podcast and the “Number 1 Show in Late Night” (self-proclaimed by them)— is always good for a great reaction GIF, whether you want to express Bronx Pride, Dominican Pride, New York City Pride, or just a plain old “No.”

10. Happy/Excited dance by Khalid 

2019 was Khalid’s year, and this GIF shows it. The perfect “having a good time so don’t bother me I just want to vibe” GIF from his music video “Young Dumb and Broke.”

11.“Whatever” by Friends

FRIENDS had quite a year in 2019! Not only did the show celebrate its 25th anniversary, but an official FRIENDS library channel launched on GIPHY! It’s no shock that this funny reaction GIF of Phoebe really blew up.

12. “Jack Nicholson ‘Yes’” by Nick Kroll

Nick Kroll’s version of the classic Jack Nicholson nodding GIF is spot on. This year he stopped by GIPHY to recreate a bunch of classic GIFs, including his own take on this year’s top GIF (“And I Oop”).

13. “Dog Yes” by TikTok

2019 was the year of TikTok and, to be honest, every year is the year of a good dog! This good boy popping up with a solid nod “YES” is exactly what the users want — a surprise, a super cute dog, and a definite reaction.
