Good thread about this from @robhorning “the "fakeness" of deepfakes is not necessarily supposed to trick people; viewers know it's fake and enjoy seeing a hidden "truth" revealed symbolically the more overtly fake it is, the more cruel it is and the more violently it is rupturing the "false" surface reality basically think people circulate deepfakes because they are cruel and violent, not because they are "realistic" and might trick people or change people's minds as deepfakes circulate, they communicate the possibility that power dictates what is "true"; circulating the deepfake is attempt to collaborate with that power (or earn protection from it)”
fwiw this wasnt even a deep fake it was just slowed down lol
