If you were watching the Grammys over the weekend, you might have noticed a couple of new ads for the iPhone X’s Animoji feature, and their unusually current soundtrack choices. But in case you weren’t, you can see both of the ads right here.
First up is “Animoji: Alien,” starring some extraterrestrial Animojis lipsynching to “Redbone” by Childish Gambino. I could try to say more about it, but what would be the point when you can just watch (and hear) it for yourself? Check it out below:
Next up we have Animoji: Amigos, which feature two natural companions (I’ll let you see exactly who) performing a rousing rendition of Migos’ “Stir Fry.” Without further ado:
Animojis work by animating the user’s own facial features rendered as the character of their choice, so this doesn’t appear to be one of those “game cards do not actually talk” scenarios. The feature is available only on the iPhone X, and you can get more info on it straight from Apple here.
