Get your puffy shirts and your marble rye ready, America. Seinfeld emoji could become available as early as next week.
The Internet went crazy this week when word got out that the creators for the Seinfeld Current Day Twitter account @seinfeld2000 had designed 42 emoji representing characters and objects that were popular on the show.
In addition to Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer, characters like Newman and George's parents are also emojified, as are items like pretzels, which notoriously made George thirsty, and the puffy shirt that Jerry unknowingly promised to wear wearing on The Today Show at the request of a "low talker."
App developer Shahruz Shaukat told Entertainment Weekly the emoji could be ready as early as next week.
According to Seinfeld 2000, the men said they reached out to Apple CEO Tim Cook about the idea, but got a cool reception.
"We called Apple and tried to make this hapen [sic] but honestly the CEO, Tim Cook or whatever, he was like “how did you get my phone number, this is my confidentiel [sic] unlisted number. I am v [sic] busy, plese [sic] stop calling” and then when we called back he simply declined becase [sic] it went straght [sic] to voicemail after only one ring or whatever. "
