Nick Offerman Full House of Mustaches Deepfake Video
I hate to be the one to subject you, my beloved reader, to something as repugnant and incredible as what I’m about to reveal. But I cannot possibly bare the burden of having witnessed this deepfake of Nick Offerman as every character on Full House alone.
Look, the Internet is a horrible place. It is an amoral wasteland for basement-dwelling morons to do reprehensible things, like abuse technology (specifically deepfakes!) to spread vile garbage.
Often, I find myself dreaming of a world in which the Internet didn’t exist or was simply deleted. Would I have a job? The answer is no. But, the world would be a better place for it, and I would be willing to accept the life of an unemployed writer for the benefit of the greater good.
Rarely—but sometimes!—the Internet can produce something good that makes me second guess this fantasy. And I reiterate, this is rare, but occasionally there are brief moments of brilliance where the Internet can be a source of actual joy.
And never have I seen something so awful and so beautiful, at the same time, as this deepfake of Offerman’s face on Stephanie, on DJ, on Danny, and Jesse and Rebecca and Joey, and even little Michelle at once. It is both deeply disturbing and a hilarious gem. It is neither good nor bad. It is funny, but it will also haunt my waking and sleeping nightmares for years to come.
If this below video brings you any joy or any pain or both, please do not @ me because this moment marks the end of my long, complicated relationship with the Internet. The time has come for me to log off.
