Harry McCracken invented Animoji Karaoke about a week ago:
As I used a pre-release iPhone X this week, it suddenly occurred to me that it might be fun to lip-sync a song to an Animoji and have it mimic my performance. I dubbed the idea “Animoji Karaoke” and have been filling my Twitter feed with it. Judging from my likes, retweets, and comments, I haven’t just been entertaining myself; some people said that it redeemed Animoji or justifed buying a thousand-dollar phone. Even cynics have taken notice of my breakthrough.
Harry’s efforts have spawned a tidal wave of similar efforts. If you’ve never seen one before, here’s a great example:
A few more worth checking out:
- Here’s a music video from Airplane Mode, done as an Animoji.
- A unicorn sings Always by Erasure.
- Here’s Luke finding out who his father is (might need to bump the volume on this one).
- And one of my favorites, the Star Wars theme, as sung by a crowd of Animoji.
