New Reaction Gif Will Become a Classic

Someone once wrote about how they do audience reaction footage for TV talent contests. They record them all before the performers even come onstage. Really. The producers ask the audience to pretend they just saw something that made them feel this way and that way and record quite a few faces to select from in the editing process later. Why? Because for one thing, they don’t have as many cameras as it appears, and for another thing, live shots don’t always catch the best reactions. This camera caught a doozy.

The reaction of this guy was so over-the-top that the producers at Australia’s Got Talent went ahead and made a show promo around him alone. But the raw .gif version will be seen everywhere, eventually. (via Tastefully Offensive)
