This video mash-up of Donald Trump and Mr. Bean is every bit as terrifying as you’d expect
If you’re not familiar with deepfakes, you’re in for a mind-blowing experience. The faked videos show convincing evidence of something that actually didn’t happen, and could be used to produce the most terrifying propaganda – lickily, they’re generally used to dick about and make funny videos, often of Donald Trump. This latest melds the images of a famous bumbling idiot and Mr. Bean. See what I did there?
The words, which are arguably as terrifying as the bizarre image, are Trump’s actual words.

Judging by the reactions, a few people will be sleeping with the lights on tonight.
😂😂😂 terrifying. But like driving by the scene of an accident, I can’t loook away.

I'm laughing, and I'm crying out of fear.

This is why we need to outlaw anyone doing work in AI.
It won't be the Terminator coming to kill you, this will be the last thing you see before the pillow covers your face.

Looks a little like Ted Cruz if he just saw a ghost.

Not everyone saw the President’s makeover as a downgrade.
Terrifying? That's a vast improvement. Now they just need to change the soundtrack to something less offensive, too.
