Hitler and Stalin sing "Video Killed the Radio Star"

This video is a funny and quite disturbing masterpiece of applied fakery (but not deepfakery), showing how adeptly computers can not only animate faces from a single photographic source but fall into a sweet spot between realism and animation’s squash and stretch.

As amusing as it is, the trivializing charm also tends to please far-right trolls. Many moons ago I made a Downfall-style parody wherein I added false English subtitles to the German-language He-Man intro (embedded below). Intended to satirize the sublimated yet overwhelming Aryanness of He-Man, it’s how I learned that the people on the internet giggling at racism will immediately get in touch with you to make plans if they think you’re one of them.
