Comedienne Molly Mulshine Creates a Video Using Real Life Emoticons

Most of us have had our share of real life 'lols' when using emoticons in conversations, but comedienne Molly Mulshine has taken things a step further. The funny lady has created a video which explores what it would be like if we used emoticons in real life.

In the hilariously quirky video, two girlfriends talk about planning a night out. The girls' facial expressions, combined with the swooshing message alert sound that pops up every time they use an emoticon, make for a sharp and at times bizarre comedy.

The girls use props like lipstick and high-heels plushies as 'real-life emoticons' to signify going out to a club and giant cocktails before things take a slightly wacky turn (as they often do when one is using emoticons) and a ghost and a guy on skis pop up. This video is a hilarious take on this generations love of the smiley communicative devices.
