  1. I have seen this gif before and I believe it it depicting kinesin/dynein, moving a vesicle along a filament (either actin, intermediate or a microtubule, not sure which), rather than myosin.

    Also in reality the molecule does not know where to move to bind to the next point. Instead it rapidly flails around much more randomly, until it happens to bind, then allowing it to move along.

    Edit: Some more info here:
