AI-generated video creeps out the internet.
Billionaire Elon Musk has been transformed into a giggling baby in the latest terrifying deepfake.
Developed with the aid of artificial intelligence, Musk can be seen giggling and playing with toys.
The baby-faced Musk even goes on to discuss how humanity is “one giant cybernetic collective,” as infants often do.
Twitter users almost unanimously reacted to the video in horror, repeatedly describing the content as “nightmare” material.

Several, however, found the video intriguing, while one individual wished they had an Elon baby for themselves.
The video is just one of many emanating from a tight-knit community of deepfake creators. Everyone from pop star Billie Eilish to President Donald Trump has been transformed into a deepfake by the technology.
In the most prominent and recent use of the technology, soccer star David Beckham was given the ability to speak 9 different languages as part of an ad campaign warning against the dangers of malaria.
