Eric Conveys an Emotion is a humor website in which Eric Wu, the site’s owner, takes requests for emotions, and then posts photos of him acting out the emotions.

The requests include emotions in the traditional sense such as happiness, sadness, anger, fear and annoyance, as well as requests such as “I would like to see Eric hurt physically. Preferably, he falls down long stairs…like in The Exorcist or something,” and very specific requests like “Working on a tech support line, answering your 500th call of someone who claims he can’t send email”. Eric also plays with the suggestions, such as “Stoned” featuring him being hit with stones, and “Procrastination” simply being labeled NOT FINISHED YET.

History

The website was established in 1998.[1]

For the month of July 2003, Eric promised to update the website with new emotions every Tuesday. His reasons were “Why Tuesday? Simple, because Strong Bad emails are on Mondays. See you Tuesday!” (Strong Bad Emails are the most popular feature of Homestarrunner.com). The Brothers Chaps, creators of Homestar Runner, are apparently friends of Eric[citation needed]; both they and several of their characters have appeared in the Football Game Adventure on the site. Some of these cameos are hard to spot: The Cheat appears on the sole of a shoe, for example.

On December 29, 2004, Eric reported that his server is in a “tizzy” and he would give a full analysis later. On January 2, 2005, Eric announced his website was “broken”, going through some upgrades, and should be up shortly. On December 25, 2005, the site was updated for the first time since January, adding a new adventure called “The Mall.” Although it had been widely accepted that the site had been abandoned, Eric posted a new news entry on July 21, 2006, renewing the possibility of a regularly updated website. Another update was posted on April 1, 2008, along with a new adventure.

Eric has not added an emotion since August 10, 2004.
[edit] Mentions
Wiki letter w.svg This section requires expansion.

The site has gained reasonable fame for its strange emotional requests and obviously photoshopped images. In 2003, the site was nominated for a Webby Award in the humor category.[2]

His picture was also used as a portrait for the main character in the cancelled PC game Fallout 3 Van Buren in its tech demo.
