Click image to view. Via @bubbaprog. Automatic bid. Won Week 4 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 305 total votes.

I still can't see Joachim Low without seeing "dad from the OC." Anyway, frankly, I don't know what I'm doing here. I'm not sure how I managed to win Week 4. Did y'all vote me in by accident or something? What's so funny about me? Is this a 'vote for nerds as the prom king/queen" sort of deal? Because if it is, **** y'all.

(12) Hi. I am LIGHTNING STRIKE.

Special nomination. Finished second in Week 10 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 175 total votes.

Sorry for boasting, but I believe I present strong upset potential. I'm the GIF that keeps on giving. The first time around, you saw the players simultaneously flip out and run away, and you had a laugh. Observe the people in the crowd, though. They're all freaking out, too ... except for one man.

No reaction. Just stares ahead, grinning slightly. WHAT DOES HE KNOW THAT WE DO NOT?!!??

VOTE!
