Trump & Zuckerberg Both Up First
The creators of South Park Matt Stone and Trey Parker have launched a weekly satire series called Sassy Justice.
The first instalment landed on YouTube this week and features deep-fakes of Donald and Ivanka Trump, the president’s senior advisor Jared Kushner, Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and Michael Caine.
Stone and Parker joined forces with Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Shaun Of The Dead) for the new project.
Here’s the first episode –
An official description reads –
“Fred Sassy is an American Consumer Advocate and reporter for the Cheyenne news at 9, a local TV station in Cheyenne, Wyoming, On his weekly show, Sassy Justice, Fred goes to battle for the common man in his hometown.
“This week, he’s uncovering the dangers behind manipulated videos that are increasingly popping up on the internet.”
As the voiceover at the start of the first episode explains –
“The times they are a-changing. Scammers are finding new ways to take advantage of you, the consumer. Now, with a technology called deepfake, you can get screwed over and lied to in ways never before possible.”
South Park recently returned with its Pandemic Special, though there is still no word on when Season 24 will begin properly.
