Hilarious Hybrid Pop Culture Figures Created for Samsung's Content-Aggregated App

A melange of everything we search.

Samsung’s personalized news app Upday is a digital content aggregator that takes news and updates from brands and bloggers, then churning it out in a unique and simple format. The platform works by asking users about the specific topics they are interested in, and then bringing everything together in one content stream that’s easy to peruse.
