Smash Mouth's Filmic Influence Goes Deeper Than 'Shrek' with a New Deepfake Supercut
Watch Tom Hanks, Gerard Butler, Christian Bale and Kate Winslet sing "All Star"
Published Sep 08, 2020In real life, alt-rock leftovers Smash Mouth are in our bad books for performing a concert to thousands of unmasked bikers in the middle of a global pandemic. (At least one concert attendee has died of COVID-19.) But on the internet, it's still fun to giggle about their silly and cute song "All Star."
The latest entry in the "All Star" meme canon comes from a YouTube user named "ontyj" [via AV Club] and it seems the song repurposed throughout various films via myriad deepfakes.
It's tempting to say that this video brings "All Star" into the world of film history, but the song is in and of itself a piece of film history thanks to its inescapable relation to Shrek. Still, it works well in movies starring Tom Hanks, Gerard Butler, Christian Bale and Kate Winslet too.
