Description: untitled tumblr gif of Niall Horan probably created for the One Direction twin meme.

This gif was sourced from a black and white Office Depot anti-bullying video in which 1D are all filmed wearing dark clothes in front of a white background. The background makes it easier to match clips. The gif maker took two separate clips featuring Niall from the film, cropped out other 1D members and captions, and merged them to create the illusion that there were two of him. The gif maker may have altered the frame rate on the confident Niall twin to slow down his dance move, but the nervous Niall twin appears to be moving at the original speed of the video. Resizing may also have been necessary to get the two Nialls to appear the same height. Brightness/contrast may have been adjusted slightly as well, but does not look significantly different from the original video.

As of 17 June 2015, the gif post has 26,534 notes and is probably the most popular (the only?) Horan Twin gif. One Styles Twin gif has more notes, at 39,668 (very likely the first ever 1D twin gif).
