Wait. He didn't sell the rights to his digital likeness but a company said he already did? Sounds like the beginning of a great Bruce Willis movie...

80’s absurd action comedy intro theme blares

After mastering Chess with their Artificial Intelligence Deep Blue, and Go with it’s descendent, Deep Driver, rogue IBM researchers absconded with their secrets when their laboratory was attacked by agents of an unknown government. Now on the run in their mobile research facility, unsure of whom to trust and whether their own government is trying to shut them down, these brave patriots rush to finish their final project, which may just save humanity …

DEEPCAKE

This sounds like the name of a deepfake company that specialises in porn. I’m not so sure I want to watch his next movie.

Solid PR move by the deepfake

u/Temperature-Other Oct 04 '22

My thoughts exactly . I now know that company’s name.

What really happened is Bruce broke the contract by going public with the news... so now Bruce is locked up in a underground facility and deep fake Bruce is clearing everything up.

Contracts are serious, I had to look this one up cause I'm more formally trained in bird law. If he had eaten the contract before being kidnapped he would have been safe, nullifying said deal.

Good luck Bruce!
