Watch Community’s Gillian Jacobs Take the Ultimate Emoji Test

Gillian Jacobs is an emoji enthusiast. She often accents her tweets with those tiny little graphics, from simple smiley faces to pizza to piles of cartoon dung. But just how fluent in emoji is the Community star? We put her to the test by translating some of the most famous lines from movies, TV, and literature into emoji, and then challenged Jacobs to translate them back into English. The pressure was on, and although she hit some stumbling blocks, Jacobs did shockingly well! Want to see if you can do better than she did? Watch the video below! (Or should we say, “cartoon eyes” “TV icon” “arrow pointing down”?)
