Share > GIF Feature Test on a few channels

YouTube has released a GIF creation feature on a very limited number of channels.  It is under the Share section of each video where users can select a section of the video and YouTube will generate a direct link or embed code for sharing on social media and blogs etc.
The ERB (Epic Rap Battles) channel is one of the limited channels that has this feature.
This is only a test we discovered so don't be surprised if this feature suddenly disappears or appears on your videos.
