The wheel! The printing press! The internet! Truly, the greatest creations in the history of wo/mankind… Until now. They’ve truly met their match in this video that translates Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love” featuring Jay Z into Emoji. Don’t agree? GTFO.
Seriously, how creatively utilized are these Japanese characters? Obviously, the big draw is seeing how Vimeo user Jesse Hill represents the “Partition” singer’s “surfboardt” lyric, but keep an eye out for: “Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby?” It’s truly glorious and involves an eggplant.
I mean, how many times have you evaded boredom by texting Emoji-fied song lyrics back and forth with a friend? An embarrassing chunk of
my SOME RANDOM STRANGER’s 2010 was spent tackling My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. We never got an “Emoji Dick” (eggplant?) out of it, but hey, we weren’t complete and utter geniuses like this person.
