Seinfeld emoji are masters of their digital domain


Published:

Here’s the spongeworthiest news of the week: someone has created Seinfeld emoji.

If you’ve been looking for the digital version of yada, yada, yada, they’re real, and they’re spectacular (if you’re not familiar with what emoji are, the Washington Post did a nice explainer on the texting icons here).

The guy behind the hilarious parody Twitter account @Seinfeld2000 (which is basically of a parody of the parody account @ModernSeinfeld) worked with a graphic artist to create an array of emoji based on the characters and items from the show about nothing — which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.

All your favorite references are there: the puffy shirt, the Junior Mints, the Soup Nazi.

If you’re confused about the misspellings or why Barack Obama (Barry Obame) or a Samsung Galaxy S5 are included, you need to dive into the bizarre world of @seinfeld2000 ASAP).

You can’t actually use the Seinfeld emoji on your phone, yet, but the @seinfeld2000 instagram account posted this teaser earlier this week, and a developer from Buzzfeed confirmed on Twitter that he has been working on an app to bring these things to life.
