Here’s a cool deep fake music video from Steven Wilson

You might remember the sensation caused by Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video when it was released in 1991. How did they come up with those face-shifting effects?. The people behind the morphing faces was Pacific Data Images, a computer into the then-new art of computer animation.

We’re talking millions of dollars in production.
