WATCH | Barack Obama Stars in Fake News Awareness Video

Don’t believe everything you see and hear online…

That’s the message from Jordan Peele, who teamed up with BuzzFeed for a public-service video announcement that puts Peele’s words into the mouth of former President Barack Obama.

The purpose of this video was to show how easy it is to manipulate videos, furthering the spread of misinformation and fake news. The video was created using Adobe After Effects and FakeApp, an application that lets you “face swap” videos.

The video begins as what appears to be a message from Obama. Halfway through, it is revealed to be Peele delivering his famous Obama impression as a voiceover to a digitally manipulated video.

(Warning: The video contains some language that viewers may find offensive.)

Stay woke and always check your sources.

Let Hot Rod be your example.
