I completed the “Where Did the Soda Go?” assignment where you are supposed to make a gif showing how bad the acting in infomercials are.

I decided to go with the “Dumbest As Seen On TV Items Ever” for the video to take my clip from. I then used the website GIPHY to create my gif to share with the world.
