/r/BackgroundGIFS metrics (Cool GIFs that would make awesome backgrounds for your phone.)

There are a couple apps that let you set an animated GIF as your phone background (unless you live in the desolate iOS wastelands). This is simply a collection of these GIFs! Preferably, they should be roughly rectangular shaped, and not too distracting (this is not a hard and fast rule). Please post direct image links or GFYCat links. If you're the sort of person with enough chutzpah to put porn as your phone background, please mark NSFW!
