Video: AI researchers make SCARY Halloween-themed ‘deepfakes’ video of Donald Trump as Winnifred Anderson


By using 3,000 photos of Donald Trump and working in collaboration with deepfakes expert DeepHomage, they were able to insert the American President into a number of scenes from Young Frankenstein and Hocus Pocus.

This clip shows Trump replacing Bette Midler in 1993’s Hocus Pocus.

“Deepfakes technology is getting better and better at faking the content, but researchers are also coming up with new ways to ‘detect’ fakes. So I don’t think there will ever be a time (at least in [the] near future) where somebody will create a deepfakes video where nobody detects that it is [a] forgery.”

Still, while the dangers posed by deepfakes tech are real, there could be entertainment-based benefits.

Yanardag tells the Sun, “Of course, the possibility of featuring dead actors (or featuring an actor’s younger self) is calling for huge opportunities. For instance, can there be a commercial face-market where you merely just shop for actors’ faces to use in your movies?”
