Deep fake fun: Rasputin sings Beyonce.

Grigori Rasputin, the Russian who managed to bugger things up for Tsar Nicholas III (and yes, the guy who inspired the Boney M song) is back in the form of a deep fake video where he sings Beyonce’s “Halo.”

Deep fake videos like this are going to be a big, BIG problem in the not-too-distant future. How are we going to be able to tell the real from the fake?
