Marking the first time deepfake technology has been used for a major US TV broadcast in the political space, anti-corruption not-for-profit RepresentUs and Mischief @ No Fixed Address has issued a sinister warning to America to stress the urgency of protecting its nation’s democracy ahead of November's US presidential elections.

As part of the 'Dictators' campaign, RepresentUs is releasing a series of deepfake ads featuring North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un and Russia President Vladimir Putin who deliver a harrowing reminder of how easily the republic can collapse.

A social media campaign will be supported by influencers including Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Jennifer Lawrence, Ed Helms, Alyssa Milano, and Kathy Griffin.
