ModelMap doesn't work, Model does

Following Chris' steps, when I open http://localhost:8080/gif the alternate text appears. When I inspect the element I see that Thymeleaf generated

<img th:src="@{/gifs/gif.name.gif'" alt="gif" />

But it works if I replace the ModelMap parameter of the gifDetails function in the GifController class with a Model parameter, i.e.

@RequestMapping(value = "/gif")
public String gifDetails(Model model) {
    Gif gif = new Gif("compiler-bot", LocalDate.of(2015, 2, 13), "Chris Ramacciotti", true);
    return "gif-details";

I wonder why this is.

This is dated, but the "/gifs/gif.name.gif" does not look correct (obvious, right? ;)
I recommend checking your Thymeleaf quotations in the view.
