The deepfake videos seem so real that one might be fooled and convinced by the encapsulating Tom Cruise looks and witty personality.

Legit.ng went through the videos on Snapchat and discovered that indeed the deepfake technology has come in the span of a few short years.

The videos of Tom are not really his but his doppelganger's who got netizens to think that the technology could be very beneficial for malevolent purposes.

This was recently confirmed by photographer Lauren White who through one of his deepfake videos on TikTok confirmed the technology was the new thing, most content creators should consider embracing.

"Deep fakes are getting scary good and taking over TikTok. Every public figure should just be on there with a verified account - even if they don't want to make content - to make it easier to identify their fakes," White said.
