The New Smashing Mystery Riddle: Have You Figured It Out Yet?

Ah, these mysterious enigmas never stop, right? To celebrate the launch of Whistler SmashingConf our first conference in Canada, we have prepared another enigma, and of course this time it will not be easier!

So how does this time work? Well, below is the first of a few animated GIFs that contain a hidden secret Twitter hashtag. Your job is to deconstruct the hashtag as quickly as possible. To do that, you have to pay attention to the file name and count objects within the GIF (for example, "3 chairs") and search for them on Twitter (ie, # 3chairs).

If you are correct, you will find a tweet that leads to the next level. Once you have reached the last stage (oh, you'll know when), just a tweet out all the tracks in one hashtag to @ smashingmag on Twitter! Not so hard, right?

Alright, let's get to the point. Are you ready?Action! (And good luck!)

Tip: Be careful with a touch on one of the tables in each of the GIF files. Great view.
So, what can you win?
