A couple weeks ago, the Redskins became the first NFL team to create emojis for all current players in their lineup.
The reaction has been nothing but spectacular; the players love their “Hailmojis.”
“I love it. I kind of looks just like me,” Chris Baker said. “It gave me a little too much stomach; I have a nice six-pack going on. But I love it, all my friends love it, all my family loves it. Any time they text me anything about football, I send my emoji and get a lot of laughs about it.”
The “Hailmojis” are a combination of animated and static emojis for fans and players to connect and engage on a new level as well as show support for their team.
“I think it’s pretty sweet,” linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. “My family got a real kick out of it, too. I think they did a pretty good job, a lot of attention to detail, even the hair. Everything looks pretty spot on.”
The ‘Hailmojis’ were customized and designed to create the most realistic and believable representation of the personalities of each player.
“I think I had the best one,” linebacker Su’a Cravens said. “Me and Fat Rob [Kelley], we had the best ones.”
While they have been a success, one player had some advice for the next wave of ‘Hailmojis.’
“They need to put on some tattoos, I feel like I’m missing a lot of tattoos,” linebacker Mason Foster said. “As far as the face, it’s pretty close. I like it.”
The “Hailmojis” are only available for free download through the official Redskins app. Fans can go to Redskins.com/app to download it for free or to find the latest update. These Hailmojis are available in the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play Store.
