Let’s take a look at the videos five most emotional moments, as only GIFs allow.

Of course this is the saddest GIF because this moment is absolutely unnecessary in the video. 95% of “Wrecking Ball” feel emotionally authentic — and then its star licks  an iron mallet. If ever there was a time to leave the needlessly sexy out, it was this video.

Which moment of the “Wrecking Ball” video do you think is the saddest?
