Tom Cruise Fans Freak After A Very Lifelike ‘Deepfake’ Goes Viral On TikTok — Watch

Using deepfake A.I. technology, a TikTok user transformed into Tom Cruise for a series of videos that ‘genuinely scared’ fans.

Sorry, but Tom Cruise didn’t join TikTok. However, a very realistic doppelgänger did — well, sort of. Thanks to the technology of Deepfake, a type of artificial intelligence that can replace someone’s face with another person’s, many fans believed that the Mission Impossible star was actually posting TikToks of himself under the name of “@deeptomcruise” (the name should’ve been a major hint).

Sports!
