There are certain emojis that even the deftest texter can never quite work into their conversations. For example: a watermelon. A surf board. That weird 69 symbol (not applicable to Tinder users). Then along came this unofficial Emoji video for Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love” and just like that, the game was changed.
The video, uploaded to Vimeo by a resident of Austin, TX named Jesse Hill, sets the whole video to Emoji — at times to very humorous effect. While the cigarette emoji on top of a snowman to signify “cigars on ice” might bring an obvious chuckle, the way he deals with mentions of “my fatty” and Jay Z’s rap are absolutely genius, as far as emojis are concerned.
“Drunk In Love” is full of the kind of lyrical nonsense spouted by two drunk people, which makes it absolutely perfect for an emoji interpretation. Get ready to start texting lines from the song to your besties, after you watch it below.
