A new viral sensation has some seriously disturbing implications, as a learning algorithm can replace faces in videos and photographs.
Users on the Internet have been creating their own "deepfake" clips from popular movies and TV shows, but one popular trend has already emerged: putting Nicolas Cage in anything and everything. One fan even corrected a historic mistake by inserting the actor in the Superman movie Man of Steel.
But it's probably not the character you thought it would be. In the video, Nicolas Cage's face is imposed over Amy Adams' Lois Lane while she interviews the Kryptonian superhero. Check it out below:
You can't unsee it...
First off, we apologize for the nightmare fuel. But if we had to look at it, we must spread the course to you as well, for all must suffer for the crimes of the few.
Secondly, how eerie is that. It's pretty obvious that Cage would absolutely own the role of Lois Lane if someone at DC Films were smart enough to cast him, but that Uncanny Valley-esque appearance is pretty frightening.
But that's just one of the many different possibilities. Check out some of the other awesome Cage-ified clips and change the way you watch your favorite movies forever!prevnext
