MTV News Deepfake


This groundbreaking TV spot for Yellowjackets Season 2 leveraged AI deepfake/de-aging technology to create a classic MTV News segment straight out of 1996 — complete with an MTV News graphic package, VHS-retro distressing, and Yellowjackets easter eggs for the super fans. Kurt was shot in New York on green screen for maximum authenticity, where he teases era-appropriate stories about mad cow disease and Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill Tour before tossing to a pitch-perfect mid-90’s aesthetic website, drawing fans deeper and deeper into our in-world cross-platform experience. De-aging by Kaleida / TSRC and Voice Conversion services provided by Respeecher.
