Yahoo! Brings the Heart Back into Email

With Gmail now the trendiest name in email (yes, it’s “trendy”), having a Yahoo! email address is almost uncool as having an AOL email address. Well, it’s not THAT bad, but a few years down the line your AshtonKLuvr@yahoo.com addy could evoke nostalgia¬† I actually met a grown woman a few months ago with an email address similar to that, but it ended @hotmail.com. Wow.

Back to the point, our pals at Goodby teamed up with production company Blacklist and directors Zoe Wishart and Sean Starkweather to make a couple of little animated vignettes highlighting the emotional, personal aspects of email. Okay, it’s not as personal as mailing an actual letter, but who does that anymore?

As the above video shows, Ella can forgive your animated character for yelling at her via Yahoo! mail’s photo slideshows. What a tech-savvy dysfunctional couple you are. Another video follows after the jump.
