Deepfake Queen

You might think with all the movies coming out where we see footage of actors transmogrified to change their age, height or other attributes, people would understand that just because you see someone say or do something, it doesn’t mean it is real. No, that wasn’t young Luke Skywalker appearing in the final episode of The Mandalorian.

Just to prove how your own eyes and ears can be fooled by a fake song and dance, here is a deepfake of the Queen of England. The video was created by Channel 4, and according to them is intended to give a “stark warning” about the threat of fake news.
