I know we're living at the dawn of the age of deepfakes but I was still surprised by how convincing this is. I guess I should be glad that they chose the Navy Seals copypasta and not, say, the UwU copypasta, though I guess that one has more unpronounceable stuff (i.e.: it starts with "Rawr X3 *nuzzzles*").

The pitch shifts were kind of weird (I wonder what the reason behind them is?), and would be a tell for someone trying to pass this off as real, but otherwise it's impeccable. The YouTube comments bring it up, but it does miss a lot of Zizek's more common ticks as well.

Hee. Now do Noam Chomsky doing the Delta Gamma Sorority Girl Memo. (Actually, nevermind, it would be pretty hard to top the Michael Shannon dramatic reading.)

"Great, now do it with Werner Herzog please."

Oh shit. We already have autotune so a Herzog/Zizek duet of "Summer Lovin'" is only a few steps away.

I had no idea what "UwU copypasta" was and against my better judgement looked it up. And well, I dunno, kids are gonna do whatever they're gonna do... what made me despair for our future was the print-on-demand merchant with "Uwu Copypasta Home Decor" inventory.

UwU copypasta

You may or may not like to know that there's a rap song as well.

Also, it's a sign that I spend far too much time on the internet that I struggle mightily not to write error messages like "*notices ur exception* OwO what's this?".
