Images-off styling of animated GIF

Can anyone think of a creative way to style an "images-off" background of this gif:

So far this is all I have:

I was playing around with the idea of breaking up each cloud's path into its own gif so that I could have more clouds and I even tried converting the elephant into a table but it ended up rendering poorly on iphones so had to scrap that.

Is there a way to create a table that would sit behind the gif and if images were turned off it would show? I haven't found any way to do it myself so I am sending this out in hopes that somebody much smarter than myself will know a way.

Thank you
