    Yes, it's truly a work of genius! But--sorry to be stupid--what in the world are those gizmos on Kavanaugh's head??

    This sure looks like Tom Hanks to me. What do the rest of you think? Many actors and actresses have been on the front lines against Trump. This one brought a needed smile to me.

    oh, I'm sure he'd wear it. But the question about reality implied use of photoshop, I think, rather than doubt about Hank's politics. I bet by next year we'll be having home-synthesized fake video too -- everyone has to be thinking that now, not waiting till it's the squirrel-of-the-day. There's 3D modelling software that lets you map the motions of your face to a rendering taken from, say, Trump or Obama, and generate very believable video. Voice is currently harder to fake. Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if you're not up on the most recent Star Wars stuff, but the resurrection of a dead actor there did not take any particularly exotic equipment to generate. Computer years are like dog years, but more so.

    Using "dead" actors is not new and has been around for a few years.
    Check this site out and don't miss the links at the bottom for examples:

    I'm pretty sure that the picture shows Tom Hanks, but the text on the t-shirt was added by someone else, after the fact. You can tell because his t-shirt surface is clearly curved and wavy, but the lines on the text are all unaffected.

    Lip-synching needs work, Barry. From what I've seen, the Right does a much better job of this sort of thing--probably because of all the ties they have to the advertising industry. Almost impossible to tell it's been done except for the content.
