Deepfake Videos and Prince **UPDATED With ScreenShots**

If you don't know what a Deepfake video is, click here: https://whatis.techtarget...n/deepfake

Last night I saw a DeepFake video of Tiffany Haddish's face over Prince's face in the video for Raspberry Beret. It was so well done-- expressions, glances, head movement, lip-sync, EVERYTHING -- that if I didn't know damn well it was fake, it would have been very easy to think it was really Tiffany. Needless to say, I didn't appreciate it at all and let my feelings be known. The video is gone now but it got me thinking about the implications of what could be to come.

I could just be too sensitive and tripping but if I come across a Deepfake video of Justin Timberfuck's face over Prince's for say the "Automatic" video. I'm just going to need y'all to write me from time to time and put a little something on my books, if you can. falloff


Anyhoo, what are y'all thoughts on this technology and what can be done with it?

I came across the video again but I couldn't download it. So I grabbed some screenshots.

Now do y'all see how freaking problematic this could be???

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

So nobody cares? Oh, okay. shrug

When one day you're happily scrolling about your business and you happen upon a DeepFake video of Michael Jackson performing "Purple Rain" or Prince in the "Bad" video singing "Your butt is mine..." Please try to remember to Orgnote me your info...first. lol

Up until now it seems as if the deepfake people have been producing their vids in a purely comedic fashion. However, the implications for misuse seem to be far- reaching and terrifying.

That's what I'd seen too, that is until I saw Tiffany Haddish performing "Raspberry Beret". I'm telling you it was so well done, that it blew my mind. For a brief moment, I thought it was really cool and cute but then I thought of the implications of how it could misued and taken entirely too far. Imagine one day finding Jacquees performing "Gett Off" from the MTV Music Awards. Or getting out of the tub in the "When Doves Cry" video.

I know I'm putting way too much thought into this but I'd rather sound the alarm about what could happen before Prince starts turning up in pornos. IJS!

Since Jim Carrey was on my mind. I headed over to Twitter and somebody has put him in the movie, The Shining. See DeepFake in action:

Guess we still can't post videos. Oh well here's the link: https://youtu.be/-ZRUZzZPGto

I don't like this and I'm not amused. Seems pretty much a pointless exercise. I guess this has some practical spplications but given how people are very appetite driven it'll be abused for profit far more regularly than used to benefit anything useful.

Did you not read me say that Prince could end up in the "Bad" video singing,"Your butt is mine..."? His face would have to be on Michael's body for that to happen. eyepop

Whoa, those pics tho. She's super cute as him but this is kinda demonic. Especially when hes not here to defend himself. We all know he wouldn't care for this. Apparently ANYONE can get this program as its free on the web. Scary!

It is definitely going to explode, it has major repurcussions in a lot of areas that people are scrambling over at the moment trying to figure out how to deal with it.

In the meantime, here is FAKE Keanu Reeves stopping a robbery.

This particular instance seems like harmless fun, but I am uneasy about the whole Deepfake thing in general. Misinformation and blatant denial of the truth are already a serious issue even without a bunch of convincing doctored videos floating around to confuse people.

This is pretty horrible BUT I would get a giggle out of Björk doing Sexy MF.

Yeah, the one time we need Prince's sue-happy, cease and desist letter - jedi ninja skills - nipping this dangerous foolishness in the bud, sadly he's not here to do so. cry

I was at a community meeting this afternoon. The main discussion was about the police department using facial recognition software. for "public safety". Add that with the way DeepFake videos like the one of Prince are "entertaining" their way into acceptability and this is some serious Orwellian type shit. eek

There's a video floating around of what appears be Tiffany Haddish doing a dead on impersonation of Prince's performance in the Raspberry Baret video. The problem is the video is not really of Tiffany Haddish. It's called a DeepFake video, which means someone took a software program and used it to mask Tiffany's face over Prince's face.

The technology is works so well that it is really hard to tell that it is not Tiffany instead of Prince because the software keeps all of Prince's characteristics, expressions and movements intact.

I think it's wrong and wanted to warn and/or prepare people for what could be the floogates opening of Prince related DeepFake videos.

RIP sad

I just saw an episode of years and years that showed some scary stuff that could end up being done with deepfake, having politicians saying things they didn't say. Now imagine this controversy surrounding faceapp blending with deepfake. Anyone doing anything they want with anyone's image.
