About

Coppy is an animated copy machine office assistant character introduced on Tumblr as an April Fool's Day joke in 2015, parodying the Microsoft Office Assistant mascot Clippy. The cartoon was well received by Tumblr users, many of whom created Coppy-themed fan arts and lamented the character's removal from the site the follow day.

Origin

On April 1st, 2015, Tumblr[1] unveiled the "Executive Suite 2016 Productivity Edition" 1990's-themed gag office software, which featured an animated assistant named Coppy (shown below).

On Tumblr dashboards, the animated character would cycle through various bizarre and humorous messages directed at the user, including "I hope to feel a butt someday" (shown below, left).


I hope I get to feel a butt someday. A human has to lubricate my insides so that paper doesn't get stuck in me. Is that what being thirsty is like? Maybe? Sometimes I have trouble remembering things.

Spread

The same day, Mashable[6] published an article about the April Fool's Day prank, highlighting an animated GIF of Coppy (shown below). Meanwhile on Tumblr, the HelloIamCoppy[3] and Coppy666[4] blogs were launched, featuring photoshopped images and animated GIFs of the April Fool's Day character. At midnight, Coppy was removed from the site, leading user Sowamemeski[9] to posted a fan art image of Coppy ascending to heaven, which garnered upwards of 24,000 notes in the next 48 hours (shown below, right).



On April 2nd, Tumblr[5] user CheerAndCosplay posted a series of Coppy screenshots in memory of the parody office assistant, gathering more than 1,200 notes in the first 24 hours (shown below). Additionally, Tumblr announced that an official Coppy T-shirt had been added to the Tumblr merch store[8] (shown below, right).

Please do so now You have me, though! I'm Coppy! Am I not enough for you? experience thirst. I'm just a copy machine. Can you tell me how it feels to be thirsty? It's too late. You've hurt me. It's not that

The same day, BuzzFeed[2] published a compilation of notable jokes and fan arts dedicated to the copy machine character. Also on April 2nd, Redditor Strangsler submitted screenshots of several Tumblr posts complaining about Coppy to the /r/TumblrInAction[7] subreddit (shown below).
