Microsoft lets Clippy come home, makes him a set of wallpapers

Do you miss Clippy? Of course you do. So does Microsoft, hence why they’ve brought him back for some freelance modeling work as the star of their latest series of wallpapers.

That’s right: You can have Clippy, in all his little metal glory, surfing on paper airplanes as your new phone background. Check out the wallpapers over on Microsoft’s Twitter.

Surely this is the start of something major and indicates a coming snowball effect wherein Clippy will become the official mascot of Microsoft, positioned to rival the likes of Sega’s Sonic and Disney’s Mickey. This is most definitely not just a one-off throwback meme reference.

Speaking of throwbacks, Microsoft did another one a week ago, offering folks a retro-themed MS phone wallpaper modeled after the banner it created to celebrate the company turning 46 years old in April.

If you want to see more of Clippy beyond a few phone wallpapers on Twitter, good luck. There’s no telling what, if anything, can convince Microsoft that the googly-eyed little paperclip is worthy of a primetime spotlight in 2021 and beyond. So simply cherish the moment and grab the wallpapers.
