SHARE Video: Obama makes a ruling on the pronunciation of GIF

Never one to avoid controversial subjects, President Obama has weighed in on the pronunciation of “GIF” during this week’s Tumblr Q&A.

Despite the creator of the image format declaring it’s pronounced with a soft G like the peanut butter, President Obama was steadfast in his beliefs: it’s a hard G.

“That is my official position. I’ve pondered it a long time,” the president said.
