Mike and Claire Present: Fried Eggs

Mike and Claire are a collaborative artist duo based in New York who craft bizarre worlds through GIFS, film and performance. VICE readers may remember the psychedelic Easter Sunday GIFS they made for us a couple months back. In recent press their work has been compared to a wide range of artists, ranging from Cindy Sherman and Ryan Trecartin to Tim and Eric

Here’s the world premiere of their new video, Fried Eggs. Inspired by the recent rise in feminism in pop culture (Pussy Riot, etc.) Mike and Claire were interested in contributing to current discourse in the media through actions rather than words. “The idea of an action being more powerful then words inspired the lack of dialogue and an importance on movement and sound,” they told VICE. “We wanted to create a modern cartoon, that represented how we feel, but at the same time paid homage to people who are making aggressive changes for women.”

MERRY CATMAS AND FELINE NAVIDAD FROM FASHION CATS!



Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re anything like us, you probably haven’t done shit to prepare. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. This year, instead of blasting out a generic, dated, and totally lame E-card to friends and family, why not step it up and send a dazzling, supurrrrrrr cute and festive Fashion Cats holiday gif? They’re fun (think: sparkling lights and falling gingerbread men), require absolutely no work from you at all, and there’s one for everyone! Send one meow!
As a bonus, why not throw in a copy of Fashion Cats? The cutest book of the cutest cats wearing the cutest outfits ever! We’re still waiting on the results, but we’re pretty sure it’s winning (the contest we just made up) for the most universally liked/cutest book ever created. Who wouldn’t want that in their stocking?
Sold at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Or click here to purchase a copy.

GIFS ARE GREAT - Viceland Today 
Someone sent us a link to these photos with gifs strategically placed on top of them and it slingshotted our morning from the bottom of a dark hangover to a place where we’re ready to crack another beer now. There’s nothing that completes a party picture quite like one of those yellow Pokemon things surfing the champagne wave of a freshly popped bottle of bubbly
