So wait a minute..My theory says is only an illusion we see the Gifs synch with the music. I mean, how come they synchronize so nicely with the music if each Gif loads in our own computers? An animated gif starts beating only after it is 100% loaded (and loading depends on the internet).

My other explanation theory explores this phenomenon through a magic lens.
