On this week’s 2 Johnnies podcast, Johnny Smacks and Johnny B, who went viral this year with their 'Cora the Catfish' story, explore the world of “deep fakes”.

The duo speak to synthetic media expert Henry Adjer about the potential power of deep fake videos.

Henry explains how the term evolved from fake images of women being uploaded to porn sites. He says that technology around AI and VFX are continuing to advance making deep fakes even more realistic.

The duo, real names John O'Brien and John McMahon, also discuss the controversy over Bruce Willis’ image being used in a deep fake ad for a Russian telecoms company and ask if deep fake technology could lead to next-level catfishing.

Tickets go on general sale on 17 th November with an O2 and Patreon pre-sale on 15 th November.
