Faces replaced with other faces; eerie video transformations that are becoming more and more commonplace.
But there is perhaps an even more pressing issue at hand. Beyond simply knowing who really appears in what video, how can any of us be sure what is and isn’t cake?
See, there’s been a rash of videos on twitter of what appear to be everyday objects which are then sliced through to reveal that they are made entirely of cake. Suffice it to say, nobody trusts anyone or anything anymore.
