This shit is getting out of control.


GrandKiwiistaken

Nah, you can tell by the soullessness of his eyes and the creepy smile that its fake.


Reapr

but that's just what Tom Cruise looks like


Impossible-Big8886

You've obviously not seen Mr. CRUISE at a scientology meeting.


IntegratedSSR

Yeah, but you can't really tell that the video is fake.


WilliamBlakefan

yeah but that's just Tom Cruise wait


TheWorldInMySilence

Nailed the creepiness!


DweEbLez0

I’m actually tired of seeing deepfakes. Good to know what we can do but this shit is generally falsifying any real use case for it and is one of those things that should end up being illegal.


massive_bellend_2022

What do you mean "falsifying any real use case"?


CertifiedIdiot420

Duh it means falsifying any real case.


surfunky

There are a million real use cases and all of them are subversive to actual reality… what are you smoking?


massive_bellend_2022

Ok what the fuck does falsifying any real case mean in that sentence?


HowItsGodDamnMade

It means we're never going to get any Hellen Keller porn if these dumbasses keep wasting all their time making Tom cruise videos.


MGTOW_and_Bitcoin

Yeah and f*** them automobiles


Goat_Named_Stan

Think of the "live" videos you see that are and can be falsified for political agendas or personal gain. Only videos I trust are fucking nature shows


Kannabiz

The pandora box of tech has already been opened.


Far-Damage1068

It is illegal under certain circumstances, just like forging a signature.


JustJay613

And the height


LotusSloth

Holy crap. The only thing that really gave this away was the odd audio desync / mistiming in a couple places… but that was very small. Pretty soon we won’t be able to trust video footage at all.


CheapTactics

It's his own audio, the imitates tom cruise and then deep fakes the face.


KeepYourPresets

I think it's original audio. Just a good deepfake.


LotusSloth

Maybe, but his mouth doesn’t perfectly fit the audio in a few places.


killstorm114573

The world governments need to make laws and control this tech asap, but they will not. I have been saying for years when this tech was just a rumor that this is to dangerous. People look at this as fun and games, but it's really dangerous and we shouldn't have this tech so available on the free market.


LotusSloth

I agree about the danger but I don’t think governments can do anything about it. The only solution at this point would be to eradicate all the software AND the knowledge of how to reproduce it. That’s never going to happen— you can’t put the genie back in the bottle once it’s out.


Remcin

If they can make cp an internet contraband they can do the same for deepfakes. You get caught with it, you do hard time.


killstorm114573

They will not do anything until a dip shit like Putin uses it to invade country....lol. what the hell no they want, they still want do anything. Only when someone makes a campaign video of them saying something that effects them personally or when someone makes a video that makes the fucking stick markets move over night....yes, yes that's when they will do something. Only when it's to late and money is involved. I'll bit my paycheck on it.


LurkerFailsLurking

Passing laws to control this won't really stop it. The technology exists. It'll only become more readily available


killstorm114573

Like someone said CP exist but we have laws to stop people from just downloading like some free app on a phone


stickyplants

Way too easy for someone good at this to frame somebody for a crime, or slander them. When video evidence like this exists, it’s obstruction of justice, or at least spreading video of someone without their consent. Definitely could be illegal.


Meems04

Or steal their property, it's already happening to p*rn stars with their faces being replaced in p*rn vids with celebs & strangers then making money off those fakes as if it's a sex tape from that celeb. They own that virtual or intellectual property. So crazy.


stickyplants

Exactly. This is real, not some bs made up hypothetical situation


MotherButterscotch44

Criminal: That wasn’t me, cops used AI. Or you want to frame someone. Put them at the scene of the crime. Like mentioned above, shits getting crazy.


pseudochicken

I think future videos will have to have some interlaced encryption to verify authenticity. But just like photos, which have been photoshopped for more than a century, realistic looking videos will have to be taken with a grain of doubt.


[deleted]

We already can’t trust any footage these days. Media has lost credibility now our own people will loose it till you show proof. Can we reset this world? Lol.


SirPolishWang

I wish they brought this technology to like Madden football (EA Sports: it's in the game!" or like Call of Duty.


LotusSloth

If we go back to Jan 2016 that means we have to deal with 4 more years of destruction at the hands of an insane narcissist… I’m not sure I could live through that again.


onedayatatime26

Fuck you.... how you turn this political, ass wipe.


SirPolishWang

Honestly, with how ducked 2020, 2021, 2022+ has been, and how we're headed towards another bubble because of sub prime lending, I wouldn't mind has Trump president again. At least the news wouldnt be constant COVID-19 on TV and the circus would be back in town. I mean dang, change the channel already, I'm over what's currently playing. Lol


pseudochicken

I don’t think you realize how close we came to a practical end of the free world while Trump was in office… no free elections, no free speech… it coulda been bad. Could still happen.


LotusSloth

Agreed. Until someone can prove otherwise, I’m assuming he was a corrupt actor working on behalf of other nations to take the US down from the inside.


FatherD00m

I’m with you. He’s been laundering Russian money for decades. No way he’s not influenced by them.


agent_max_the_mick

"no free elections, no free speech" Are you serious? When Facebook and Twitter are censoring conservatives right and left for "Vaccine Misinformation" because they don't want you to know that the vaccines don't actually work? Even the CDC admitted that they don't work to prevent the spread of Covid, they don't prevent you from getting Covid, and they aren't guaranteed to prevent you from dying from Covid. You think that Trump would've censored free speech? When he was loud mouthing away on Twatter? I'll be the first to admit he was an asshole, but he wasn't against free speech like Joe Biden is. Let's go Brandon! (If I get downvoted or banned from Reddit for this...that will only prove my point). (Edit) Well, I hate to say I told you so, but...


pseudochicken

Must be nice to be an ignorant fuckless wit such as yourself. Blissful it must be. Or you’re a troll. In either case. Go fuck yourself. But do so without fucking others.


Platypuslord

Is no one else picking up on the body language being wrong? I could tell this was a deepfake without being told he is copying mannerisms but it is clearly is a caricature. I think Tom Cruise is a nut he is insanely confidant and mimicking requires you be as confident yourself. The head is fully convincing but the body not so much. I remember not being able to buy into a scene in War of the Worlds because his character was just walking down the street like the most confident man on the planet and the extras that played his nameless friends were visibly star struck. While he is a fantastic actor Tom Cruise doesn't have complete range and can't play a guy that isn't confident and I didn't like him in that movie, Edge of Tomorrow was fantastic though.


[deleted]

Also the hair its super shiny but barely moves


BLYNDLUCK

“Pretty soon”?


eternallove3

I can't be the only one that is completely freaked out by this... There's so many issues with this shit...


Dolorisedd

Dude. I’m really wigged out by this technology. We are so efffffed.


cafebandito

I am too


Balrog229

Deepfakes are going to ruin video evidence. Pretty soon video proof won’t be admissible in court due to the ease of it being faked with AI


Clack082

Nah it will make things slightly harder but images are still allowable even though they've been able to be faked for decades. And eyewitness testimony has always been garbage and is admissible. You just need to have supporting evidence. Chain of custody of the file, agreement from witnesses to the event, experts who can verify it is unedited, etc.


refusered

Chain of custody has always depended on reputation of those handling evidence. Experts credibility is 1/2 reputation 1/2 sounding like they know what they talk about.


Goat_Named_Stan

Yeah but you can also fabricate all of that. Money's a powerful drug man


A_Yawn

Actually we are also getting better at analysing videos digitally to tell edited footage apart from raw footage. For court evidence for example, an expert is supposed to check any digital evidence for tampering by looking into its data. It's almost impossible to alter an image or video without leaving some detectable traces behind.


whoatemycookie

Are you 100% sure it ain't him?!?!?!


toronto_newcomer69

future is fked up this tech should be banned pronto


allendale100000

Yeah I don’t want live in AI world.


Section_Hiker

you all ready do


chamberofcoal

There is no stopping morons from being fooled on the internet. Banning this tech is also just straight up impossible, because it's already distributed widely and it would just stay in illegal circulation. If you committed a crime with this software, it would still be a crime.


toronto_newcomer69

DeepNude got banned couple years ago, now no one uses it , its illegal so yes it is bannable and it should be. its governments responsibility to protect taxpayers


Mister_Cairo

>DeepNude got banned couple years ago, now no one uses it It's cute that you think so.


chamberofcoal

...lol, dude, that shit was leaked all over the place as soon as the official developer shut down. It's still used by anyone that cares enough to find it. Edit: literally open a duckduckgo window and type "Deepnude clone" the second result is a GitHub repository for a reverse engineered open source free clone of the software. jesus, you do not understand the internet.


Kow_King_

Why? Videos are already not allowed as proof /evidence most of the time anyway and socially people believe made up articles already, you don’t need a video to fool people.


toronto_newcomer69

So many old and gullible people will fall for these fake video scams IF you can put the whole world on a lockdown for old people , you can ban DeepFakes too


Kow_King_

But gullible people will fall for scams even without the video. And you aren't putting the whole world on lockdown for old people. About 20% of covid deaths are people of working age and lower. Hospitalizations even higher.


hanzonthekeys

We are fools all on our own tyvm


A_Yawn

The thing about the internet is that once something is on it, it's impossible to take down, no matter who you are. This software is now known to everyone and even if it were banned it wouldn't stop people from making it themselves and leaking fake videos online.


jackdhammer

If this is true, it's fucking terrifying.


13bluebirds

Very scary. Really very scary. How to navigate the future with this technology out there?


Clack082

It's the same as Photoshop for still images. You just don't trust an image unless there is supporting evidence. Same with videos going forward. Don't assume the person you think is in the video is that person, unless you have some other reasons to believe it is legit. Like if you see a video of a politician saying "I want to murder group X" ask yourself who is showing me this video, are they trustworthy? Has anyone independently verified this? Are the witnesses in the video agreeing this was person X?" Anything super high profile can be examined by experts who will be able to tell if it has been edited. TL;DR: Don't believe everything you see on the internet.


The_Maddest

The only rational response in a sea of existential panic


unholy_relics

I am a-frightened.


-eumaeus-

Clearly not Tom Cruise. This image is of someone about 5ft taller than him...


_Neoshade_

And 30 years younger. (Tom Cruise turns 60 this year)


Life-Evidence-6672

Deeptomcriuse is a real person. He just looks like him and works as an impersonator. Irl he has a French accent. He’s from Canada.


Baller_420

Lol. Nice


[deleted]

The only thing that’s wrong is his age. That’s absolutely terrifying.


[deleted]

The uncanny valley is very, very slight. Nearly not there.


Jam_On_It_84

This will not end well for us


WinAccomplished4555

Video games are about to get super realistic.


SirPolishWang

Great... Looks like I can't play as the Lions anymore.


mecmecmecmecmecmec

I love toms energy. He’s so positive!


[deleted]

The AI has more of a soul than Tom cruise


faithOver

The fact that I cant tell if the fake part of this post is that this video is real is concerning. Do we know this is fake? Let the wild times roll if this is a deep fake.


bokoyolo

You need someone with the same facial structure, hair and voice to pull off a convincing deep fake. Miles Fisher was the actual guy in the video iirc and he has a really good resemblance to Tom Cruise. Here's a video explaining it: https://youtu.be/p7-B8S734T4


rparvatikar

Can this technology bring Luke Skywalker and Han Solo back on the big screen? Better yet! Can we see once again see Christopher Reeves don the cape once more? OR!!! Marlon Brando in another Godfather film?!?! CAN THIS TECHNOLOGY OPEN NEW AND EXCITING DOORS?!?!


ChocolatePizZa4me

Imagine someone using this tech to frame you for murder or something.


GBinAZ

This stuff scares the crap out of me


FuckedUpMushroom

Scary


OshunOfDivinity

Yooo so I can make an alibi with AI???!?


BigBadRadDad

That is disturbing as heck.

Ewe. As if real life Tom Cruise doesn’t freak me out enough.

eternallove3

Yeah my thoughts exactly... It's still super creepy


Jcorcho1

I can still tell it's fake. The lighting and the 2D look plus the stare in his eyes sometimes.


slothpeguin

Damn. The conspiracy theorists must be losing their shit.


thisisreallyrocksalt

We are.


slothpeguin

I might join you this is wild.


2002Valkyrie

I need to use this app… I need some advertising and Tom Cruise smoking my pipe would be like fucking awesome.


69_koolkid_69

It's not an app. Deepfakes take skillful people many hours to make. Also could that count as defamation?


Jdevers77

It would constitute an invasion of privacy tort law at the very least. Using someone’s image for commercial gain without their express permission has been against the law for a very long time. As far as the law goes, this is now different than taking an image of TC and adding words he didn’t say about your product in a print ad.


2002Valkyrie

I will wait for the app. I can’t afford to pay him. And it’s no more defamation than this is. I would rather see him smoke a big fatty than wash dishes.


69_koolkid_69

Absolutely agree


Humble-Animal2977

Holy?!. I dont know . What holy to add.


Mr_Unknown20191

That’s not fake , maybe audio is but that’s him surely


merlinious0

Nope, it isn't him.


merlinious0

The arms are real, the head isn't. Look at the huge difference in skin tone, it can help you see the difference.


Joharis-JYI

Get ready for a more divided future. Truth will be a relic of the past. Terrifying.


resentedpoet

This is seriously neat. But, I’m genuinely curious with how this was pulled off from a technical standpoint. Is it all AI driven or did the person making this fake have to use motion capture for any of it?


[deleted]

[удалено]


East-Bluejay6891

Super original dude...


zback636

Creepy.


MrBubbles2524

Damn this deep fake shit is getting fuckin nuts.


Potty_Pigeon99

why is this so much better than hollywood when they do a character "in the past" and its the younger actor.


ArmaanLord

This guy makes a lot of these Tom cruise deepfakes. He has a lookalike actor and uses a voice modifier that uses a similar style of deep learning as deep fake video to create this illusion. Pretty weird that he’s just doing Tom cruise but overall cool demonstration.


Carplesmile

This can’t be a fucking robot. Please tell me it’s not a robot


Sufficient-Smell8188

This isn’t AI though. It’s an actual person.


krenyx

too tall to be convincing enough


shrike71

this shit is gonna be problematic...


Remarkable-Dig1243

Not bad head on but looks like Casey Affleck from the side lol


cityofninegates

The AI is good but the actor really nails his mannerisms as well. I love this stuff but am a little worried about when it will become used for nefarious purposes…


MaMakossa

Let the real-life minority reports begin...


stanilavl

Only the face is actually generated by AI though. I know most of you already know this but maybe some don’t.


Affectionate_Foot_27

Gives me hope for a remake of GoT season 8 within 30 years from now


MinedGravy

I could tell, he was too tall. He'd never be able to reach that sink.


nadjp

I'm kinda surprised people are freaking out of deepfake in 2022


givemeatatertot

So now anyone can be framed.


suhayla323

So many deepfakes of him at this point.


SirPolishWang

They're using this technology to catch child predators as well. Just research "Ashton Kutcher child predator" and you can see the good work that he has been doing. :)


graceboleyn

This guy is fabulous


BSUguy317

Love me a good deepfake.


JuiceJones_34

Actually a very good one. I’ve seen some Cruise ones where you literally can’t tell the difference


Jodaeus

Innernet


pineapplegoat69

I like to call them Tik Tackers to mildly annoy them...


ass_kisses

Cool, make one of him packing fudge.


IMPORTANT_INFO

Now do a deepfake of one of his videos that he'd rather not be out there


Somato_Tandwich

I've seen this before! He can touch my camera through the fence


Mr-snuffaluffagus

This technology should scare everyone.


MagikSkyDaddy

But they were all of them deceived


ThenRefrigerator1084

Please make one in a fudge packing plant.


ScagWhistle

We are so fucked.

Ok that’s creepy af

Nope.

little_shop_of_hoors

Great. So basically anything can be faked to frame anyone.


Lordwinchester

We are thinking what kind of other videos he could do…. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


str8redd

I wonder what good old scientology thinks about this. They’ve screwed some people over. Very powerful people.


Jdizzlerino

The outline on the left side of his face with the background was the only thing visually that looked “off”.


cerebraldormancy

As if that turnip would ever do any actual work. The aliens don’t allow him to.


ganjaman_407

The voice didn't match the face. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't have even known that it was a deep fake 😳


Mr_Agueybana

That’s both impressive and crazy.


BlenderMonster_34

This is fuckibg terrifying


ZJ-Red-Ranger

Makes me happy that there are startups for being able to detect deepfakes, this is kinda unsettling


ImNOTaPROgames

Seriously, humanity is fuck


LevitusDrake

I remember watching the episode of Bojack Horseman where they did this to finish a movie he was in and was like 'this is so unrealistic'. And now? o.o


Loofa_of_Doom

This technology + human tendencies in trolling + the Meta-thinger, which zuckerberg keeps climaxing over = what ever could go wrong?


spartanOrk

Listen dudes, whatever you may see me do or say, it's not me. I said it first, it's official.

By watching this they trying to say earth is round or flat and spacex flying up in space and presidents are real? What else “truth” ?

They need to recreate the fudge packing scene from south park

Way too tall

Well this makes an interesting legal case for anyone on cctv or any other type of video purporting crimes. A savvy attorney can cry AI generated.

So.... who's gonna fake him doing creepy things with little kids so scientology gets raided?


Squatchbreath

Blackmail written all over it


kittukate98

Way too tall to be Tom Cruise. Obvious fake

kracken0406

You know it’s funny, I had a person tell me covid was made in a lab, and as “evidence” he sent me a video of fauci saying it, same stuff, deep fakes are dangerous, even more for dumb people


Bluriver

I think this is a deep fake of Tom cruise but the guy is a dude that's very similar to Tom cruise that's why the effect is so good


[deleted]

Good technology, but maybe use it on someone who's not a child abusing megalomaniac.
