Internet Predators Become Terrifying Emoji in Child Safety Campaign Smiley faces have never been so un-cute

Horrified by this depiction of a real-life emoji? Well good, that's the idea.

French child advocacy group Innocence en Danger created this ad campaign, bringing Internet chat icons into creeptastic human form, to warn parents and young people about the adult predators who might be behind online conversations. Headlines ask, "Who's really talking with your child on the Internet?"

The results are definitely unnerving, which is exactly what Parisian agency Rosapark was going for. Via Gizmodo
