If you’ve perused social media or entertainment sites over the past couple of years, you likely ran across at least one viral deepfake video, including a recent effort where Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. take over the roles of Marty McFly and Doc Brown respectively in Back to the Future (from YouTuber EZRyderX47).

Deepfakes, the photo and video manipulation practice of taking a person in a video or image and replacing him with another, has been around in some form for some time, but has recently been used more and more by both independent and commercial creators.
So far this has been used primarily for the “wow” factor, and in some alternate reality casting calls, but the idea that you can nearly flawlessly take one face and superimpose it (movements, mannerisms and all) onto another body is just a teensy bit eerie. This application can be misused and abused in everything from politics to pornography, and make public figures or celebrities look they are doing or saying something they never have.
Whether deepfake is a potentially dangerous technique or an innovative way to create “What If…” stories, it certainly is impressive. Here are some more weird and cool examples.
EZRyderX47 has done some other great deepfake videos, including putting the “real” Han Solo, Harrison Ford, in Mel Brooks’s Spaceballs, and he handles his Schwartz very well.
