  • Jordan Peele turns Obama into foul-mouthed fake-news PSA

Buzzfeed released a video on Tuesday that at first appears to show former US President Barack Obama conveying a warning, saying "We're entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point in time". Rather, they got the next best person: Jordan Peele, who not only does a famously spot-on Obama impression but has almost as high an approval rating as our 44th president in the wake of making Get Out.

"We're entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point in time - even if they would never say those things", says "Obama", his lips moving in flawless sync with his words as they become increasingly freaky. "So, for instance, they could have me say things like, 'I don't know, Killmonger was right!' Or, 'Ben Carson is in the sunken place!' Or, how 'bout this: Simply, 'President Trump is a total and complete dipsh-t'". Instead, Jordan Peele has combined his impression of Barack Obama with photorealistic editing software that allows users to match their words with another person's face.

It looked like Obama, it sounded like Obama, but alas it was fake news. Aside from Donald's use of the term, we can't deny that we are living in a time where more than ever, we need to stay vigilant about credible sources on the internet.

"This is a risky time", Peele says after his reveal.

"We've covered counterfeit news websites that say the pope endorsed Trump that look kinda like real news but because it's text people have started to become more wary", said BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti. Originally, there were fake news articles, but people are becoming more aware of these dangers.

This particular PSA was produced by Jared Sosa, who used Adobe After Effects and FakeApp to manipulate the footage.

The "Get Out" writer-director collaborated with BuzzFeed to create the video, according to the Huffington Post. "And simultaneously it's always had a dark side that objectionable, with people who are either trolls or hackers or scammers or politically motivated".
