We’ve seen plenty of clever song edits in which clips of words were selected from movies or speeches to recreate a song. Those are fun, but we’ve seen it a lot. The next step in this technology is here. Auralnauts has the characters of The Matrix singing the song “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice, but it’s not a rapid-fire editing of clips. It honestly appears that the cast of The Matrix was reassembled to sing the song. You can believe that, or if you select the other pill, you’ll find it’s deepfake technology with artificial intelligence voice training, and it’s really eerie how well it can put words in characters’ mouths. The better you know The Matrix, the more impressed you’ll be with the song. Oh yeah, there’s a special guest artist in the middle who will surprise you. For the moment, we can put the implications of this video technique aside and enjoy the performance, if you can call it a performance at all. -via Boing Boing
