Alright, we’ve all been hearing about deepfakes lately. For those of you who haven’t heard, deep fakes, by my understanding, are computer generated fake imagery, usually in the form of videos, of people doing or saying things that they wouldn’t normally do or say. This video is the perfect example.
When it comes to deepfakes the more important element is that it’s believable. Does the person sound right, look right, and what they’re saying come within the realm of possibility? That’s what makes this video so great. When I watched it, it felt like I was watching the real, “Mark” who wasn’t trying to hide anything. Like he was telling the truth. It was just perfect.
I guess that the result of this video was a change in the way Facebook vets the posts that it allows on the site. I’m not a big Facebook fan, so this is so funny to me. Here’s the video and serious props to the artists that created it.
When the “fake” Mark Zuckerberg says, “Spector showed me…” I swear I laughed out loud.
