Green created the GIF last year and last month wrote of her surprise it was being shared again. "Happy 69th Birthday to the Thin White Duke himself! Can't wait to listen to the new album. It's amazing to see the Bowie GIF still travelling around a year later - enormous thanks to everyone who shared/shares it! x."
