Gifs are basically silent moving clips, so it’s impossible for them to make noise, but one particular gif is driving people crazy because 70% of people claim they can hear it!
If you hear a ‘thud’ noise when it bounces, you aren’t alone. Someone gave an explanation why, read below:
When the visuals presented to you impose a cognitive load greater than what your brain can handle, your brain tends to stop processing it objectively and replaces it with stereotypes/previous experience. This image forces your brain to associate it with the stereotype image 1/2
