These pop culture-inspired emojis show the new wave in expression and communication for the Millennial generation. With texting becoming such a vital form of communication, emojis have become the biggest expression-based innovation in recent memory.

These pop culture-inspired emojis are an even deeper reflection of this revelation, instead of just using the generic emojis, people want specific ones from their favorite movie or celebrity to express who they are and the point they are trying to get across.

Pop culture-inspired emojis include everything from 'Star Wars' emojis of R2-D2 and Darth Vader to Kanye West emojis that feature the various expressions of Yeezus himself. There are also the innovations that these emojis have inspired in pop culture, like the Drake "Running Through the 6" app-based video game or even emoji-based movie posters.
