“Recently, I was exposed to reverse-animated GIFs. I must say, some are hilarious. Find a video clip, or shoot one of yourself, and then make it playback in reverse over and over again as a GIF. Try to find a situation that is absolutely mind-blowing when played backwards.”

I thought of the idea of Henry Bemis obtaining the power to reverse time so he could finally enjoy his books.
