Answer: Clippy.

If you used Microsoft Office at all between 1997 and 2001, you likely remember Clippy. The animated paperclip can be considered an early attempt at a virtual assistant, appearing to offer users help and tips with the Office platform.

Though it’s been 20 years since Clippy officially graced our screens, Microsoft appears to be entertaining the idea of resurrecting it. In a tweet Wednesday, the company announced that if said tweet received 20,000 likes, it would replace the Office 365’s paperclip emoji with Clippy.
