Faking it ;-) The laughable (and terrifying) era of A.I. generated celebrities

“Why bother with real celebrities when you can just make your own?

(Disclaimer: this article has been written using artificial intelligence).

Ladies and gentlemen, we have some breaking news: Brad Pitt is now a woman! Yes, you read that right. Thanks to the power of AI-generated deep fake celebrities, we can now transform Hollywood’s hottest hunks into stunning ladies, and vice versa. It’s like Freaky Friday, but on steroids.

To illustrate this article, we’re using the work of Joann, an artist specialized in AI graphics. In the artist’s latest projects, it gives us a glimpse of what our favorite stars would look like if they were in a Wes Anderson movie, and then flips their gender like a pancake. And let me tell you, the results are hilarious and terrifying at the same time.

On the other hand, we have to wonder: what does this mean for our society? Are we just playing with fire?

But let’s not get too serious here. After all, this is just a bit of fun, right? Who doesn’t love a good gender swap ;-)? It’s like watching your favorite stars play dress-up, with a twist… And the fact that we can do this with AI-generated deep fake celebrities just makes it all the more exciting.

Of course, there are some ethical concerns to consider. What if someone uses this technology to create fake videos of real people doing things they never did? What if they use it to ruin someone’s reputation or privacy? These are valid questions that we need to address as a society.

 But let’s not forget that we can also use this technology for good, if we will be able to keep it as a tool for entertainment creativity.


So, let’s embrace the possibilities of AI-generated deep fake celebrities with a sense of humor and a healthy dose of skepticism. Let’s marvel at the hilarity of seeing Elon Musk in a wig and a skirt, but also be aware of the implications of this technology. And let’s not forget that we’re using the work of an artist who has mastered the art of making us laugh and cringe at the same time.


In the end, the possibilities of technology are endless, and we’re only scratching the surface. Who knows what kind of AI-generated deep fake celebrities we’ll see next? Maybe we’ll have virtual versions of ourselves that are better looking and more successful than the real thing without the need of painful cosmetic surgery.

Or maybe we’ll just be living in a world of endless deception and manipulation. Either way, let’s face it with humor, wit, and a little bit of panic. Because if there’s one thing that’s certain in this world, it’s that technology is a laughing matter and a cause for concern at the same time.

“After all,what could possibly go wrong?”
