Today I wanted to convert a YouTube video to an animated GIF so that I could give some of the Minnesota Vikings fans a little trouble. I liked the video of Tavaris Jackson getting leveled. So I wanted to make an animated GIF of this so that I could use it as my avatar. That way, they’d have to look at it all day.

I thought this would take a long time to do, but I was willing to do whatever it took to make this video into a GIF. I was delighted to find a tool that does it for you. You just put in the YouTube URL and set how far in you want it to start and how long the video lasts. Easy!
