Beyoncé's 'Drunk in Love' + Emojis = the Video You Didn't Know You Needed

03/05/2014 AT 11:30 AM EST



Emojis are here to stay, and so is Beyoncé. So this video of "Drunk in Love" illustrated with emojis makes perfect sense.

Vimeo user Jesse Hill created the video using all your favorite emojis: Praying hands, cigarettes and of course, the martini.

The video has even gotten the official Yoncé seal of approval: She posted it on Facebook Tuesday, writing "Love this!!"



While some fans of the video have noticed its similarities to another music video that uses emojis, Hill has defended his creation eloquently, writing on Vimeo:

"I had seen the 'Boring Angel' video. I love it. I just made this video for fun. But once it made a stir and the comparisons were drawn, I considered the ethics of it all. I came to the conclusion that, despite the implications, emoji is a relevant language and that John Michael Boling [the artist who created the other video] and I are each using it with unique dialects to convey very different moods, meanings and messages.

"My conclusion may be subjective and beneficial to my own defense, but I truly believe it to be valid. More of these videos will come."

Note: Video uses uncensored version of "Drunk in Love."
