MIT Deepfake Nixon Speech "In Event of Moon Disaster"

On July 20, 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin landed on the lunar surface. What would happen next will forever be etched into the history of humanity.

And U.S. President Richard Nixon had a secret speech prepared in case NASA couldn't get the two back home.

In this incredible deepfake video, MIT painstakingly creates the Nixon broadcast he thankfully never had to deliver to the American people. It's a beautifully written one, too. Watch and let us know what you think. -Fritz
