A very realistic-looking deep fake Tom Cruise

The real fake Tom Cruise

It’s unclear whether Tom Cruise’s face is just ideally suited to deep fakes, or if we’ve just taken a leap in deep fakery, but damn, the @deeptomcruise Instagram account dropped some stunning fakes last week that were frighteningly realistic.

I won’t bother with a link because all the videos have been made private, but fortunately some quick peeps managed to grab them for posterity (or evidence), which you can watch here (or below). It’s believed to be the work of Belgium deep faker Chris Ume (reports Fortune), who apparently has a pretty good golf swing too.
