The iPhone X's 'Animoji' feature has created an excellent new meme

It’s Monday morning, you’re still somehow hungover from Friday night, and you need some joy in your life - literally anything to momentarily wrench you away from the hell that is Being Alive.

Well good news, we have just the thing for you, in the form of a very stupid yet very enjoyable meme, that’s been born out of the new iPhone X’s ‘Animoji’ feature.

If you hadn’t seen, one of the more gimmicky updates the new thousand-pound iPhone brings you is the ability to bring emoji to life, in a similar way to Snapchat filters.

The feature maps your face, allowing you to ‘become’ an emoji, like this:

It didn’t take long to realise that this means you can make the Animoji sing, by miming the words to a song, while playing the real version in the background.

And so ‘Animoji Karaoke’ was born, and is now going viral, thanks to the Twitter account @AnimojiVids.

Here are some of the best:

’I Will Always Love You’ - Whitney Houston

’Get Lucky’ - Daft Punk

’Man’s Not Hot’ - Roadman Shaq

’Who Let the Dogs Out’ - Baha Men

’Hello’ - Adele

’In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle’ - The Tokens

’All Star’ - Smash Mouth

’Waterfalls’ - TLC

So simple, and yet so full of joy.
