The Google Webmaster blog explains that this is powered off of structured data such as recipe markup, product markup, and video markup. With GIFs, Google does magic and is able to do that all by itself.

Google added, "while we can't guarantee that badges will always be shown, adding the recommended structured data fields in addition to the required fields may increase the chance of adding a badge to your image search results."

Also the structured data testing tool and rich card report can all help you get your markup up to speed of this, if you care.
