One of the biggest stories of the year has been the drama between Sony and North Korea over the plot of the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy The Interview, in which their characters are hired by the US government to kill North Korea's dictator, Kim Jong-Un. The film is arguably the most important of the year because of the Sony hack, the terror threats, and the conversations about freedom of speech that it inspired. Despite the potential threat that North Korea poses, Kim Jong-Un has continued to be the butt of many jokes stateside, and now thanks to the Emo-Emoji App, you can share those jokes right from your smartphone in the form of hilarious stickers.
The free Emo-Emoji App launches on Jan. 5 and will feature other pop culture-inspired original stickers, updated daily to reflect current events and trends. "No one has yet to do this, and we aren’t afraid of controversy," said artist Le Messie in a press release. "We’re going to be as edgy as we can get away with under Apple." The app will also spawn a fashion and merchandise line that will be "user-dictated," meaning that the stickers with the most likes and shares will be put into production on hats, T-shirts, skateboards, and other products. The brand will present their merchandising concept at the Agenda Trade Show in Long Beach next month.
