We need to talk about these deepfake Tom Cruise TikTok videos

Millions of people watched Tom Cruise play golf and do magic tricks on TikTok.

Thing is, it's actually not Tom Cruise at all. It's a deepfake - meaning, technology to make it appear it's Tom Cruise, when in reality it isn't. 

Vice writes:



A deepfake video typically involves swapping one person’s face onto the body of someone else, using a kind of artificial intelligence technique known as a “generative adversarial network” to match the target’s facial movements with the new face.


I repeat: this is not really Tom Cruise.

I don't even want to begin what the implications are for this - especially in the pop music world.

Exhale, thoughts? Are you frightened? Intrigued? Sound off. BTW this is really me. :surejan:

IDK when I saw these I legit and to keep re-reading to make SURE it wasn't actually Tom Cruise. This legit will haunt me lol

This is def the most convincing deep fake that I have seen - you can't see the pixelation like you typically can. I guess they are still working hard on progressing their technology. I don't like it.

Kinda scary tbh. Hoping Team Britney never finds out.

I fail to see the consequences of them finding out being worse than her current situation. Unless they created deep fakes to create interviews of her speaking in favor of the conservatorship.
