President Moon "deep fake" lip-licking campaign poster

I posted this over on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but it looks like yesterday somebody put it up on Reddit too. So I might as well throw it up here too. 

Somebody, presumably an Ilbe bug, made a "deep fake" version of President Moon Jae-in's campaign poster (well, I guess he wasn't president back then). I got hold of it when a coworker buddy put it in our group chat. Is it tasteless? Yes. Creepy? Yes. Inappropriate? Yes. Borderline illegal? I sure hope not. 

President Moon showing some... charm? 

But it is an incredibly rich and detailed creation. It's disturbing to think that some basement dweller made this in his spare time for a gag. If this level of detail can be made so casually, we can truly no longer trust anything we see online, even video content. Already I hear tell that deep fakes of K-pop singers are making their way onto porn sites. It's only a matter of time before some algorithm will take your friends' Facebook photos and stick their heads on some X-rated video. 

To paraphrase a great philosopher, "our computer guys have been so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they haven't stopped to think if they should."
