Mindy Kaling giving advice through GIFs is the only advice we’ll ever need
Mindy Kaling is a woman of many talents. She’s a successful actress, a New York Times bestselling author, a series creator, and an occasional director. She’s so well-rounded and experienced (she’s even confessed to being a “know-it-all”), that if you wanted sound advice about anything at all, there’s no better person to seek help from than her. And deliver advice she did, because Mindy Kaling is the woman who keeps on giving.
To promote her new show Champions, Mindy Kaling held a quick Q&GIF-A on Twitter. Before you even ask, the answer is yes, it’s exactly what it sounds. You tweet her a question, she tweets back with an appropriate GIF, because what better way to communicate than through GIFs, right? And honestly, why aren’t celebrities doing this more?
As expected — because she’s Mindy, and she’s great at everything she does — her answers were all GOLD. Her GIF responses were all lifted from scenes from The Office, The Mindy Project, Champions, and even Sesame Street, and you know what? We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Let’s comb through them, shall we?
What she does when she suffers through writer’s block:
Her advice for a female college graduate hoping to take on the business side of the film industry:
Her message to fellow brown women chasing a career in a non-STEM related field:
Her number one tip on dealing with #haters:
When a fan asked if she could be her best friend:
Her thoughts about the infamous Beyoncé #bitegate:
Like we said, this is the *only* advice we’ll ever need.
And apparently, GIF speak isn’t the only internet language Mindy Kaling is well-versed in; she’s also fluent in emojis.
Ike Barinholtz, who starred alongside her on The Mindy Project, revealed that his emoji game is pretty decent, and it’s all thanks to Mindy.
"I think my emoji game was pretty tight before," Barinholtz told HelloGiggles. "only because I'm friends with Mindy [Kaling]. There's a lot of emojis."
So there you have it: If you need help with anything, just seek help from Mindy on Twitter and hope that she’ll respond with a well-curated GIF or a cryptic string of emojis. It’s 2018, who needs written or spoken advice anyway?
