World's largest animated gif woos London crowds.


The world's largest animated gif has gone on display in Trafalgar Square, London, to a rapturous welcome.

The gif, which is half a million pixels wide and loops for eternity, drew gasps of wonder over its scale and epic proportions when it was unveiled this morning in a free viewing to celebrate the ultimate in web marketing.

"It's absolutely beautiful, its simplicity is refreshing and the message has something for everyone," said passing pedestrian Neil Spangle.

"I just want to buy something, but I don't know what: it's very clever," said Neil, adding, "I think I'm going to be sick now."

The makers are currently looking for a web page large enough to accommodate the half-terabyte graphic. Meanwhile, plans to install the widest version of Dreamweaver ever seen - Dreamweaver XXL, are on hold until the introduction of specially cantilevered web servers sometime in 2005.
