Yo, so a Twitch streamer has been using Deepfake AI to make himself look like Keanu Reeves. It’s similar to being a VTuber, which has been popular on Twitch for a while. But people are criticizing Twitch for calling VTubers AI. Keanu has been in a bunch of Deepfake clips on YouTube and it’s kind of like that “scramble suit” thing in the movie A Scanner Darkly, where he wore a suit that changed his face and body. It’s crazy ’cause Deepfake is usually just in movies and stuff but now it’s getting easier to use and people are making their own movie trailers and interviews with different actors. Some rumors say Bruce Willis sold his image rights so he doesn’t have to act anymore, but he denied it.
Yeah, and now that it’s so easy to use Deepfake, more Twitch streamers are probably gonna start doing it too. Like in the clip, NymN’s face is replaced by Keanu’s and it looks seamless. If you didn’t know, you might think it’s really Keanu streaming and doing the Fortnite floss dance, especially since he’s been putting out funny short videos on YouTube. But a dead giveaway is when NymN says Keanu’s famous line “you’re breathtaking” and you can tell it’s not his voice.
