This... doesn't look convincing to me? Looks like they just changed some facial features to make it look like Jim Carrey. Aren't these supposed to sound like the person too?

The first few shots I wasn't impressed...but then when it got to that side angle and he starts ripping up the paper, etc. that was pretty crazy looking.

Im glad this was posted, can someone explain this deep fake thing to me?

The first time I ran into it was this.


Is this just clever inserting?

You can see where Nicholsan's forehead ends and Carrey's begins in the close ups
Yeah the Carrey face parts have a pretty different skin tone to them. It's interesting tech to be sure but it's pretty clear that this is edited footage.

EDIT: plus sometimes the facial features don't stay in place properly; you can also see it a few times in the Hader clip right above this post

Bill Hader's spot on impersonation really sells this one. This is just one guy doing it. Imagine if a film studio gave him like $20 million.

I honestly think deepfake needs to be super regulated and under wraps like porn. Imagine people making videos of Obama saying white people suck or whatever. It will spread like wildfire on Facebook and Republican circles and become "truth".

That was bloody amazing, lots of shots looked real, especially the side and the paper tearing, etc. One of the best I've seen.

Uh...you think porn is 'under wraps' and 'super regulated'? Since fucking when?

Watch Years and Years. It's Black Mirror, but about this exact thing.

We're gonna need deepfake detectives soon. To those who are saying they can spot this, I wonder how much of that is already being aware this is fake by the title. If this showed up on Movietrailers Facebook page as The Shinning Jim Carry remake, would we buy into it?

Jim Carey and Jack have completely different face shapes. Deep Fakes always looks best when the two people look similar

We’re well past the point of “seeing is believing” when it comes to the right wing. If anything the idea of footage that they’re not able to see, because it’s been destroyed or whatever, is much more engaging to the right wing narrative.

Who's the girl? She looks uncanny as hell. Deepfake technology still has a long way to go before we get realistic face swaps.

Already happening. There are doofuses right now that think the video of drunk Pelosi is real.

I think ai swaps are always gonna look a little funky because people's faces dont move the same. You couldn't swap drew barrymore's face with jim carrey's for example. You'd just be like "why is jim carrey talking out of the side of his mouth?"

You get that to a lesser degree here. Jim carrey's face doesn't move like that IRL

Not to mention hair, body shape, etc
