YouTuber Ctrl+Shift+Face created this freaky video of comedian Bill Hader seamlessly morphing into Tom Cruise, which has gone massively viral.

In the video, Bill Hader is telling a story on a late night chat show about a conversation that he had with Tom Cruise. In the original clip, Bill does an impression of Tom at certain points in the story. But in this manipulated clip, he turns into Tom instead. The editor uses “deepfakes” to seamlessly switch Bill’s face to Toms. The technique has been seen as very controversial and scary since it was first created, as people are concerned about the impact that it could have on our ability to know what’s true and what’s not.

At the moment, if you watch a video of someone saying something, you know that they did actually say it. But here, we see that video might not be a reliable source of information anymore. The YouTuber behind this video said that he made the video to make people aware of the risks that deepfakes could pose and wanted to show people just how convincing they could be. It’s a funny video to watch, but the message behind it is quite serious.
