If you're a frequent visitor to The Verge, you might've noticed that we have a strong affinity to both gadgets and GIFs. With this contest, we're aligning the two passions and giving away a 2013 Ford Focus Electric to the best original GIFs inspired by the latest episode of On The Verge. Our panel of judges — select members of The Verge editorial — are looking for the funniest and most creative work.

Here's what you need to do. Create your own original animated GIF inspired by this week's episode of On The Verge. Your conditions are at least five frames of content from this latest show, episode 009, and a 10MB maximum file size. (Also no copyright materials — sorry, legal concerns!) That leaves quite a range to be creative, and we can't wait to see what you come up with. Then submit your entry in the comments below — one valid entry per person. More details:
