HARD Challenges Apple To Create Spoon Emoji For Charity

If you haven’t heard of electronic music’s biggest new duo Spoon Ü, do yourself a favor and watch HARD’s official trailer for HARD Summer 2015. Every year HARD puts together a hilarious trailer for their yearly festival in August and this year’s starred Dillon Francis and Porter Robinson as new super-duo Spoon Ü.

In the weeks since the trailer’s release, the spoon-related hype has continued to grow ultimately leading to HARD putting together a petition for Apple to create a spoon emoji. While it might seem a little silly, HARD is making sure the petition will benefit a good cause teaming up with the L.A. Regional Food Bank and crowd-funding company Challeng. The way Challeng works is contributors pledge a certain amount of money as support for a specific cause or demand and if the campaign’s goal is met (in this case Apple would need to add a spoon emoji), contributors are charged the amount they pledged.

HARD kicked things by making an initial pledge of $1,000 so head over to the Challeng page to show your support.
