So, when I first saw this I thought it was a deepfake. The video quality is juuuust poor enough to look like someone trying to obfuscate photo-choppin, the topic and performance juuuust off-color enough to be offensive to literally everyone.

But then I found out that it's one hundred percent real and my brain broke.

We all need to get in the habit of automatically assuming a deepfake in situations like this one.

The first version I saw was an embedded, non-youtube player.

So then the suspicion of it being a deepfake is easily erased in this instance, no problem.

I'm just saying, it's a mentality that we all need to get into ASAP, because 2020 is gonna be hell.
