It can be Boozeday Tuesday every day with a virtual wine toast with Kathie Lee Gifford using the new Giphy World app.

You can take a virtual selfie sharing cheers with a wineglass-toting Hoda and Kathie Lee, share a smile with Matt Lauer and more. The app includes those GIFs of those plus Al Roker, Savannah Guthrie, Carson Daly, Megyn Kelly and TODAY's puppy, Charlie.

Kathie Lee and Hoda got a demonstration from TODAY producer Donna Farizan on Tuesday, who showed fans outside Rockefeller Center how they could take a selfie with the TODAY duo right there on the streets of Manhattan.

Hoda then used the app on an iPad, showing the GIFs of TODAY anchors decorating the actual TODAY control room.

You can add multiple GIFs to your surroundings and even record a video of your creation to post online. Make sure to check it out and share your creations with friends!
