Crumbles are kinda like reaction GIFs with a way bigger vocabulary…
For better or worse, reaction GIFs have changed the way people communicate online. Whereas before people would have to be burdened with the task of typing out a response to a question or a statement, now an infinite loop of a film or TV character doing something funny will suffice. Crumbles is somewhat of a reaction GIF creation tool, but with a much larger vocabulary. To create a Crumble, you select from a list of words found in the right-hand toolbar. Most of the words are simple — ”a,” “the,” “what,” etc. — but you’ll be surprised how easy it is to find the words you’re looking for.
Each word corresponds to a short clip from a movie or TV show, such as Will Ferrell in Anchorman saying “let’s,” Batman saying “go” or Beavis and Butthead saying “movie.” After entering a string of up to 25 words, these clips are combined into a short Crumble, which plays back in order. It’s funny to hear various famous movie characters speaking the sentence you’ve crafted back to you, and it’s much more effective of a communication tool than a simple reaction GIF. You can also select words entirely from the dictionary of Homer Simpson or Bee and Puppycat, if you’re a fan. Crumbles are easily sharable, so the site’s worth checking out to see how creative you can get with the many short movie clips available.
