Reddit communities can be extremely specific, but the r/michaelbaygifs subreddit is universal. Who wouldn’t be blown away by a group dedicated to planting cluster bombs of explosive Michael Bay-related GIFs and then detonating them all over the Internet? (Sorry, couldn’t help it.) Just to be clear, these gifs don’t come from actual Michael Bay movies—they just take inspiration from the Transformers director’s well-documented obsession with making things go boom (and occasionally from his pal J.J. Abrams). But watching cats (or a gorilla on a bike, or the subreddit itself) blow up into flaming CGI shrapnel has the same entertainment value as an average Michael Bay movie—with approximately the same amount of plot.
