Oh man, I remember when 7up was so big they made entire games revolving around Cool Spot! I spent hours on that game playing as cool spot. Probably explains why I'm so cool today
I mean really a 7up Dot?
It's funny, my initial instinct is to agree, I mean, it definitely makes the site look dated. Then I had a think, and even though we now have hundreds of emoji one shipping stock with most software suites these days, they're all just static smileys. No movement or animation at all, which actually seems kind of bizarre given the explosion in the popularity of gifs over the last few years.But anyone being honest with themselves has to know.... Showing up to a site and seeing this crap is anything but inspiring or confidence inducing:
Like, really? It screams Geocities/Tripod.
I think it would be kind of cool if the best ones were simply recreated in their full animated glory to be high resolution and look sharp on all the modern retina displays.
It would be kind of cool to see a resurgence of the old animated smileys, but with a modern twist.
