Finally, a Truly Benevolent Use of Deepfake Technology
If you could make one of those DND alignment charts for deepfake tech, you’d probably get something like:
Neutral good: Fixing that ugly Lion King remake. Bill Hader becoming the T-1000.
Chaotic good: Harrison Ford inserted into Solo, twice.
Chaotic evil: Pete Davidson’s face pasted onto Ariana Grande’s body. And Donald Trump’s face pasted onto a baby.
While obviously all the horrible misogynist uses and covert state violence the tech is being deployed for would be classed as a whole other category of true evil.
It’s a mixed bag, in other words.
So I’m not even sure where this deepfake of iconic movie clips singing Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ falls. I feel it’s somewhere in the chaotic good camp?
