U.S. 2020 Election Deepfake Promo
In the summer of 2020, we wondered: what if Donald Trump doesn’t win, and isn't reelected? Could he go back to his career as a TV host? If so, might he be a good fit for the RT channel? Deepfake technology helped us visualize the idea. We used real soundbites from Donald Trump’s speeches and placed them in Russian context to maximize the effect. The promo provoked a buzz on social media. Trump supporters and haters alike all shared the video and there was reaction from both Russian and Western media outlets.
