Apple recently premiered a new series of Memoji ads starring animated versions of Ariana Grande, Khalid, and Florida Georgia Line. Following that rollout, Google Pixel has now showcased the latest version of its Playmoji in an ad starring Childish Gambino.
In the commercial, the Grammy-winning artist debuts an unreleased song called “Human Sacrifice,” which he performed last year during his fall headlining tour. An animated Gambino is seen showing off his dance moves alongside Sherrie Silver, the dancer who choreographed the video for "This Is America."
Google Pixel owners can take full advantage of the recently added AR sticker. In addition to responding to user's facial expressions, Playmoji will dance to three Gambino tracks: “Redbone,” “Summertime Magic,” and “This Is America.” Google worked directly with Silver to ensure the moves you see are as authentic as possible.
[CORRECTION: March 7, 9:30 a.m. EST]: An earlier version of this story stated incorrectly stated that singer SZA is dancing alongside Childish Gambino in the ad, not Sherrie Silver. This story has been updated to amend that.
