For those who don’t know, deepfake content uses or manipulates images, videos, or audio clips to deliver outlandish messages in what seems to be an official broadcast.
Of course, the video wasn’t quite the hit to official broadcast channels like Britain’s Channel 4. In a statement, they said that the fake video was “a stark warning about the advanced technology that is enabling the proliferation of misinformation and fake news in a digital age.”
The clip that everyone is talking about was taken from HBO Max‘s forthcoming animated series entitled “The Prince.” In the video, we see the “Queen,” who is voiced by Frances de la Tour) looking back at last year’s annus horribulus – talks about the pandemic and wildfires.
However, the “Queen” was upstaged when seven-year-old “Prince George” starts talking about how Coachella was cancelled, the postponed James Bond movies, and Denise Richards leaving “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
In true “Family Guy” fashion, the clip ends on a vulgar note as the Queen says the year “really f—— sucked” while trying to make things lighter by saying “At least we got the vaccine.” Prince George comes with a rebuttal and replies, “Most of them didn’t,” referring to the audience. The prince tops it off with “Merry Christmas, bitches. Geroge and GanGan out.” and a mic drop.
“The Prince” series will be centered on Prince George and his siblings as they comment on all things royal. Princess Charlotte will be voiced by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, Prince Harry will be voiced by Orlando Bloom, Meghan Markle will be voiced by Condola Rashad, Kate Middleton will be voiced by Lucy Punch, and Iwan Rheon as Prince William.
