Green Day’s new Anchorman tour announcement is a deep fake video. Cool.

It’s been a busy week for Green Day, what with a new single, a surprise club gig, and the announcement of the 20202 Hella Mega Tour that will also include Weezer, Fall Out Boy and The Interrupters.

To officially unveil the tour, the band issued this deep fake video where faces of the original Anchorman actors are swapped out. It’s cool albeit a bit crude in execution–but also a bit creepy.
