Could this year's greatest documentary be about Emojis?

A new kind of documentary may be coming to a screen new you. the difference with this one is that it is all about Emojis, those entertaining, little images such as the smiling poop.

As the trailer puts it:

Since they first appeared on our shores early in this decade, charming, versatile and intelligent figures have captured our hearts. The have become part of the very fabric of our society. We’ve embraced them in our workplaces and offices. They have found a place in our schools.  Our children adore them. We have even welcomed them into our homes. They are called Emoji.

As you may have guessed this documentary is a joke and will not be coming to a screen near you. Emojis Among Us was made by stock footage company Dissolve. If it all looks a bit familiar, dissolve were the ones who made the masterpiece This Is a Generic Brand Video.
