It's interesting the things you stumble on early in the morning. 

Like this game in the Messenger app for mobile phones. Here's how to get it. 

1. Send an emoji of a basketball to anyone

2. Tap on the emoji. 

3. This image will appear:


4. Play! Flick your finger up to the top of your screen towards the goal. Once it reaches 10, the backboard moves around

5. Make sure you send the basketball emoji to a friend and not your boss or someone easily annoyed, because they will receive notifications when you play, just like in the picture below! Don't want the boss to know how much time you've wasted!
