I've always wondered about those kind of gifs. Is this something that happens on TV or something? Are the makers of the gif happening upon this, or is it something that is deliberately done?

It's a sort of glitch in the video decompression algorithm.

In half-assed layman's terms (because I'm pretty vague on the exact system) video compression stores only a small fraction of the original video as full, exact keyframes (that you could extract into an actual image). The rest is stored as changes from that keyframe. Usually it's something like 1 out of every 30 frames is a keyframe. So you get 1 good frame, and then a series of changes to make it into the next keyframe, and then the next full keyframe, and so on. Those interstitial frames may not be exact images because they're just the minimum amount of data required to get to the next keyframe.

If you skip a keyframe, though, you get a series of changes, and then the assumption that a keyframe has been displayed, and then changes based on the skipped keyframe. But since that keyframe wasn't displayed, you get them overlaid on some other image and stuff can get weird and very broken looking.

Some people intentionally corrupt videos in order to get glitch videos like that, since it's cool and surreal and melty. There are other things that people do that do similar things based on corrupting the video data in different ways. I post that kind of gif every so often too.

That's how I understand it, anyway.

Here's a cute shark:

Ha ha! I am going to shout this each time I allow gravity to pull my capybara-like shape into the lake this summer.
