I remember the moment I saw an enlarged Emoji on Snapchat. It was last Tuesday night; I sat up straight in bed and knew my life was changed forever. This are few things I love more in this world than Emojis and when they’re larger than life, I LITERALLY CAN’T EVEN. The number one reason I am sad I missed Taylor Swift’s late-night pizza/birthday party is not because Beyonce and Sam Smith were there, but because Justin Timberlake wore a poop Emoji mask and that is a reason to rejoice for all that is right in this world. But I digress.
So last Thursday night, I was out with my beloved @BrosBeingBasic at the Bonobos menswear boutique opening, and we spent 90% of the evening hanging out by ourselves in the back of the store (near the bar, duh) and creating a Snapchat story. It was the brainchild of my friend Nick Via (nickvia on Snapchat, tough to remember), who has been my Snapchat mentor (read: actually responds to me when I text him “WAIT HOW DO I DO THIS WHAT IS HAPPENING???!”), and I highly recommend everyone follow him. But don’t like, send him tit pics or whatever (I know some of you desperados were thinking it).
Here’s what happens when someone says, “Ok everyone, act out your favorite Emoji.”
Homegirl needs a vodka drink in her other hand; who can I email?
The face worth a thousand emotions. How I feel pretty much every time I go on a date.
Happy family. It was hard to nail those soulless eyes though.
Still don’t know what this guy is about, but I like it. I always feel bad for this chick. She looks like she just farted while simultaneously getting dumped by her boyfriend (think about how bad that would suck for a second).
Pro coloring (that’s Nick btw).
No one would ever make that face, but whatever. That creeper in the back though…
A tough one to master.
And later at the bar…
And when I got home after 93749274 vodka drinks…
I think we nailed them. Ish. And now I just can’t wait to see all the Emoji creations my hilarious friends are coming up with like these gems from dimesatchel:
