I will likely never purchase an iPhone. I just don’t like them. I must admit, though, the two Animoji ads which aired during the Grammys tonight, almost changed my mind.
The spots highlight the Face ID technology in the iPhone X that can make custom 3D versions of animated emoji based on your facial expressions, and are so darn cute!
One ad, called “Amigos,” features a dog and a poop emoji singing along to “Stir Fry” by hip-hop trio Migos, while carrot, broccoli, and cucumber emoji fly by.
The other ad features Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” being sung by an alien emoji and unicorn backup singers, which spiral out into a psychedelic universe of cascading cat, panda, robot, and unicorn emoji.
Both Migos and Childish Gambino were nominated for multiple Grammys, including Gambino’s Awaken, My Love! up for album of the year and Migos’ Culture up for best rap album.
