Good morning Creators, and happy Monday! We're back with another challenge this week that I hope you'll all get a kick out of - The 5 Day GIF Challenge! We know everyone in the MP community has a great sense of humour and appreciate the importance of a well placed GIF. That being said, we're challenging you all to really GIF it all you've got with this one. Sorry for the obvious pun, but I just had to. I promise next time I'll try to gif you fair warning.

The Challenge

For each day, choose one of the scenarios listed below and tell us a story using GIFs and or memes to show your reactions/emotions while going through the different phases/emotions of the story. At the end of each post, tag several members of the Moviepilot community who you would like to keep the train rolling!

Here are the possible scenarios:

  • An awkward family film viewing
  • A date that didn't go well OR exceeded expectations
  • Watching an emotional film :'-(
  • Watching your first Rated-R film
  • A horror flick that you were NOT ready for and/or haunted you for days after
  • When you have high expectations for a film and it flops
  • Binge watching a TV series when you KNOW you should go to sleep
  • Watching a film and everyone else around you is on their phones/being obnoxious
  • That moment when you DIDN'T see the plot twist coming
  • Watching a film that's got you laughing uncontrollably
  • MAKE UP YOUR OWN!

*These categories are simply for your own inspiration. You are more than welcome to come up with your own scenarios for each day if you like.

To kick off the challenge, here is my entry for the first day...

Day 1: Movie Night With The Parentals

The following is based on a true story, sadly.
The following is based on a true story, sadly.

It's a Friday afternoon and I've just gotten out of school. My dad and brother are picking me up so we can go to the video store and rent some movies. Can. Not. Wait.

When we got to the store we headed to the 'New Movies' section and grabbed some Hollywood film whose name I can't seem to remember.

Anyways, after we found our movie we headed for the snacks. The lady running the place was pretty nasty though, she was in a real hurry to kick us out.

Once we got home I popped in the film and we all sat down on the sofa, excited to see if the film we'd chosen would live up to the hype... And oh man, did it live up to it.

So about 30 minutes into the film the two main characters start taking their clothes off, saying all sorts of... stuff. Yeah, you know where this is going. At that point I began to scoot back in my seat, knowing things were about to get weird.

Meanwhile my mom is like:

My dad was absolutely freaking out too.

My brother, however, is a total creep so he was totally down with this whole situation.

In the midst of all the awkwardness I just tried to stay cool, calm and collected. Patiently waiting for the scene to be over... I think I did a good job?

Yeah. I feel like it's safe to say that our little family movie night was a huge failure and I WILL be needing therapy.

Thanks for checking out my story everyone, now I want to hear YOURS!
