Emotional Post

Good morning, everyone. Thank you for coming out to our Emoji Stand-In Auditions. As you already know, our current emojis have been working hard, and would like the chance for a break, so we’re hoping to find some lookalikes to temporarily take over for smaller appearances: texts, DMs, that kind of thing.

Let’s see who’s first. Shocked?

Not bad. There are a few key differences, though that might make it obvious you’re not the original.

Wooden circle from a model kit, with two large circle eyes, a jagged circle mouth, and a smaller circle "beauty mark" beside the mouth. Speech bubble says, "I can't help it, it's a beauty mark!"

Be that as it may, it’s not your only identifying feature. *CoughMouthCough*

Unfortunately this is a very subjective business, and we owe it to our clients to only cast actors who will be able to replace them unnoticed.

Moving on.

Let’s see WTF.

All right, I can kind of see the resemblance, but I think you’re missing a few key features. Like a head.

Who’s next? Sad? Go ahead.

Now we’re getting closer. Not bad shape, decent brow work, colour’s a bit off, but we could work with that…

Can you cry on demand? Let’s see some tears.

Same sad pickle face. Speech bubble says, "I'm not really much of a crier."

Well, sorry, but I’m afraid you’re out. Can’t have a sad emoji who can’t cry.

Next!

Somebody give me something happy.

You’ve got the expression down pat. Come back when you’ve taken care of those wrinkles. Maybe see if you can get a colour enhancement while you’re at it. Then we’ll talk.

Right. I think that wraps up our auditions for today. Thanks for coming out. While we didn’t manage to cast any lookalikes today, a few of you made strong showings. Keep practicing, get some work done, and maybe we’ll be seeing you in texts soon!
