This is not going to be a full post. Or at least it doesn’t need to be. That is how bad the fakery involved here is.
Previously, I postulated that the scary Kamala Harris lookalike with the black eyes from MSNBC last month was most likely a Deepfake. Well, it turns out the Democratic Party is not finished using Deepfakes…
We are told that “Hunter Biden” “spoke” at the Democratic Party’s “Virtual” Convention last week. My comical overuse of quotes there is not actually so comical.
Immediately, the few remaining social media users who are not asleep picked up on the fact that this was clearly not Hunter Biden and called shenanigans. Anyone remotely familiar with Hunter Biden knows that this does not resemble him in the slightest.
The video of the speech, linked below, is the pièce de résistance. I have never seen a more obvious fake. What stands out most is the unnatural facial muscle movement (or lack thereof) as “Hunter” speaks. It is as though the lips are being fed through on a different layer. This is a simple kind of Deepfake that we have seen many times before.
Take a look for yourself. The video is thankfully short. This is “Hunter Biden” introducing Joe Biden at the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Whoever did this “Hunter Biden” video ought to be fired. Then shot from a cannon into the sun.
The top comments point out that this is not Hunter Biden. Rightfully so!
The Deepfake technology that we are seeing on Hunter here reminds me very much of the technology seen in the video below. It is actually rudimentary. This method results in the exact same awkward lack of facial muscle involvement as the person “speaks” that we can plainly see in the Hunter Biden video.
The main question we must ask ourselves is: Why are they doing this?! The most obvious answer is that the real Hunter Biden was probably too drunk and/or too much of a train-wreck to actually get to sit down and film the segment. Why bother with the real Hunter Biden (a drugged out elitist jerk) when you have the technology to just fake it?
The whole sequence creeps me out, as it also is attempting to subconsciously send us positive messages about Joe Biden. (Good luck with that one!)
They are getting so bad with these fakes that they don’t even bother to make the fakes resemble the real person! They make them all look like Ken dolls. Why make a perfect match when you can make them look better, I guess…? We have the technology! Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.
As I suggested before, the use of this kind of technology is accelerating. Perhaps as part of the whole coronavirus con, as people are indoors and separated from each other and living in a virtual world, they are using the opportunity to further blur the lines between reality and the virtual world. It was a virtual convention, after all. Odds are, it will be a virtual Presidency.
Why do I feel that this rabbit hole goes deeper? Stay tuned.
