Times Square: a fun spammer GIF

Nick FitzGerald reported a neat spammer image trick to me the other day. It's entered in The Spammers' Compendium that involves using animation to display the word Viagra emulating a flashing neon sign.

Since many OCR systems merge the layers together before OCR this image is actually in the 'wrong' order. Once merged the letters are in the order VIRAAG.
