‘Black Mirror’ Takes a Shot at Apple’s New iPhone With Familiar ‘Animoji’

Black Mirror iPhone Waldo
House of Tomorrow

The world of Black Mirror seems closer to reality with each passing year, and Apple’s new iPhone X may have just give us our “Waldo Moment.” The dystopian tech anthology took aim at Apple with a parody of yesterday’s big announcements, featuring a familiar blue face.

Where yesterday saw Apple facing some traditional snark over its forward-thinking iPhone X, Black Mirror couldn’t help noticing the user-generated “Animojis” bore a striking resemblance to the title technology of Season 2’s “The Waldo Moment.” The episode in question already proved eerily topical with its election of a cartoonish outsider who disrupts any and all political norms, but the show’s Twitter makes a striking point about the iPhone connection:

This isn’t the first time the Black Mirror account has gotten a bit cheeky, as the show’s social media famously tweeted on November 8 “This isn’t an episode. This isn’t marketing. This is reality.” It likely won’t be the last time the series proves eerily accurate as well, given that Season 4 will bring us six new episodes in the coming months.

You can watch the announcement titles for Black Mirror Season 4 below, and have your very own Waldo moment soon.
