Here's an award-winning GIF of Obama on a skateboard

A hilarious GIF of President Obama skateboarding his way onto the stage at the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul was the big winner at the second annual GIFY Awards.

Of course, this entertaining breach of professional conduct, which made its debut on an episode of The Tonight Show, didn't really happen — it just looks incredibly realistic, which is probably part of why it was crowned Best GIF of 2014. However, there's a small controversy over whether the masterpiece was actually created in 2014. Some believe it was created three years ago, because the wall behind Obama at the summit says 2012 (although it seems the creators could've simply used video from the 2012 event, in 2014).

The results were announced March 5. Check out the rest of the GIFY Award winners here.
