Call us old fashion, but a good Gchat or Facebook convo isn’t complete without the help of some animated GIFS. They are like an extra form of punctuation that really drives home what you are saying to your bestie, boyfriend, girlfriend or grandma. But sometimes you run into a problem: how many times can you send Robin Scherbatsky drinking under her desk or dame Maggie Smith throwing some Downton Abbey shade? Which is why today BroadwayBox introduces 13 animated GIFS taken from the b-roll of the acclaimed Broadway revival You Can’t Take It With You that are perfect for all your gchat/fb needs.
A good, hearty LOL, featuring none other than Darth Vader himself, Tony winner James Earl Jones.
But there’s also a sarcastic LOL for when the joke’s on you.
Here’s a GIF that really captures that Monday morning feeling or getting stuck inside during a sunny day, or better yet, being hung-over at school or work.
On the flip side nothing says Friday afternoon like a dancing Annaleigh Ashford.
Speaking of Annaleigh, this one works itself into the conversation in two ways: 1. I’m walking on air/can’t touch this and 2. I could care less/look at all the *#@! I give.
Now let’s talk crushes and flirtations. This Rose Byrne GIF is perfect for when you’re feeling flirty and need some encouragement. You can send it to a crush instead of that lame winky or send it to a friend when talking about that new crush.
This GIF works for when you find out your crush is single, or you just got a raise at work, or better yet, it’s payday and your checking account is going up from single digits.
This terrific Elizabeth Ashley GIF is pretty self explanatory, but you want to use it sparingly so it keeps its holier-than-thou shine.
You don’t need a still from Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead to say “I’m right on top of that Rose” to your loved ones.
And just try to say this isn’t better than a normal, old thumbs up emoji.
Your friend is engaged! Someone just had a baby! Your best friend got into the college of their choice! Who knows? This super-excited GIF buys you a minute when you hear great news and need a second to collect your thoughts.
And then there’s Julie Halston again for when the news is less than great and you want a second before saying the wrong thing. Or you send this one over to your other open conversation with another friend in reaction to that wedding, baby, college admission.
This final GIF works for happy birthday, I love you, or we just bought tickets to see the star-studded revival of You Can’t Take It With You and I’m just so grateful.
You Can't Take It With You continues at Broadway's Longacre Theatre.
