Nicolas Cage Is Being Added to Every Movie Thanks to the Magic of Deep-Learning Technology
Published Jan 29, 2018Nicolas Cage has 87 acting credits to his name, with an impressive six roles coming up in 2018 alone. But his career begs an important question — what if Nicolas Cage was in even more movies?
Luckily, thanks to the marvels of modern technology, these questions don't have to go unanswered, haunting us as we lay awake at night. Instead, Redditors have started adding Nicolas Cage to every movie.
Motherboard recently reported on a deep-learning algorithm that makes it easy for anyone to swap out a face in a video. With instantly terrifying results, most people are using the tech to add celebrities' faces to existing porn videos without their consent.
Fortunately, thanks to Nicolas Cage, we have a far more innocent use of this technological breakthrough. As reported by The Outline, the Deepfakes subreddit has moved on from morally dubious porn videos to Cage edits that are fun for the whole family.
While we ignore the potentially devastating effects that this technology could have on humanity, let's laugh along with some classic Nic Cage edits below.
