While Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader might be renowned for his impressions, a new fan video uses cutting-edge technology to make his Arnold Schwarzenegger impression creepier than ever before.
While this video, at first glance, is a normal interview conducted by Conan O'Brien, the comedian's face seamlessly morphs into the face of the star of Terminator: Dark Fate.
Later on in the interview, Hader recalls the time he worked as a production assistant on the 2002 film Collateral Damage starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and directed by Andrew Davis. When he does his impression of Schwarzenegger, the "deepfake" video picks up again and Schwarzenegger's face eerily merges with Hader's face.
The video was created by the YouTube channel Ctrl Shift Face, whose YouTube channel focuses primarily on deepfakes. The description of the channel reads: "I'm creating entertaining deepfake videos. Do not believe everything that you see on the internet ok?"
Deepfake is a combination of "deep learning" and "fake" and the term was first used in 2017. The controversial software can be used to digitally "map" one person's face onto someone else's body.
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta. The film opens Nov. 1.
