Jimmy Dean Is Launching a Real-Life GIF Creator Powered by the Sun

If you like solar-powered GIFs, you're probably lying, because they've never existed until now.

Jimmy Dean has put together this wacky solar-powered contraption that will produce animated GIFs, all in the name of their new lunch and dinner line. Jimmy Dean is known for getting your breakfast poppin' with sausage biscuit sandwiches and breakfast bowls, but now they're going to start expanding beyond breakfast with meals such as pulled pork sandwiches, ham sandwiches, turkey bowls, steak bowls and more.

As part of a "Sun Cinema," this solar-powered machine will be on display in Los Angeles until September 12 between noon and 2 p.m. pst. With the use of everyday kitchen utensils like forks and spoons, along with mirrors and lithographs to capture sunlight, there will be five different 6-second animated shadow stories projected onto a 10-foot tall, 25-foot wide wall. If you can't make it to the Hollywood and Highland event, vids of the images will be posted daily to their social media accounts right after they're created.

The contraption looks eerily similar to Peter Griffin's unnecessary breakfast machine, but the end result won't shoot you in the arm or provide breakfast, it'll be creating short GIFs for the new lunch and dinner line.

Jimmy Dean is all about that sun life and wants you to join in the solar fetish by taking "Shadow Selfies" and hashtagging #SunPowered. After uploading said pics for their September 17 sweepstakes, you can win a month's worth of free Jimmy Dean's new lunch and dinner products.

Now, about that pulled pork biscuit...
