President Joe Biden deepfaked singing Baby Shark
A video that has surfaced on TikTok shows footage of Joe Biden singing the world famous children’s song has been identified as a deepfake.
The PM announces he will sing the national anthem but instead begins to sing the opening lines of Baby Shark in the doctored vision where his lips match the words. A news strap at the bottom of the screen makes it look like a broadcast clip with a logo of an onion in the corner which looks similar to that of the satirical website. The original footage is from Biden’s speech on lowering costs for families at a community college in Irvine, California.
From comments on social media it is clear that some people believe the deepfake was actually Joe Biden singing with some claiming this is ‘proof’ he is suffering from dementia and others baffled how he is still a world leader. The video has been removed from TikTok and Instagram. As new technologies continue to advance, deepfake political videos that spread misinformation and influence elections are an increasing concern.
