“Elon Musk Reacts to Deepfake Tesla Ad Allegedly Featuring Ryan Reynolds”
A recent Tesla advertisement circulating on social media has caught the attention of Elon Musk, although it turns out to be a complete fabrication utilizing deepfake technology.
After Twitter user @meetRealKevin shared a video playfully claiming to showcase Ryan Reynolds as the new face of Tesla, the CEO himself, Elon Musk, responded.
In the clip, the fake Reynolds enthusiastically exclaims, “How much do you think it would cost to own a car that’s this f***ing awesome?!” He adds, “Whose balls do I have to fondle to get a Tesla instead of a s*** Corolla?”
Musk, in response, simply replied with a one-word comment, “nice,” thereby bringing further attention to the video among his extensive followers.
However, it should be noted that this ad is entirely fictitious and generated through the use of deepfake technology, highlighting the growing concerns surrounding its manipulation and misinformation potential.
Musk replied to the clip by commenting with the word “nice”, simultaneously bringing it to the attention of his millions of followers.

It wasn’t long until the shoe was on the other foot, though.
Digital marketing agency Maximum Effort, which was been co-founded by Reynolds, then posted a deepfake video which sees an artificial version of Musk promoting Reynolds’ company Aviation Gin.

It’s not the first time stories about Musk and deepfakes have made headlines over recent times.

The internet has been abuzz with viral photos allegedly showing Elon Musk passionately kissing a female humanoid robot. However, the truth behind the images is far from what meets the eye. It has been revealed that these widely shared photos are not genuine but rather a product of artificial intelligence, generating four different depictions of Musk engaging in intimate moments with various “wife” robots and dancing alongside female-looking humanoids.
Interestingly, this revelation comes in the wake of Ryan Reynolds playfully trolling his celebrity friend Taylor Swift amid recent rumors linking her romantically to The 1975’s Matty Healy. Reynolds took to his Instagram Stories and shared a selfie featuring himself, accompanied by the popular hit song “Chocolate” by The 1975.
These instances showcase the whimsical nature of the online world, where viral phenomena and playful antics intertwine, often blurring the lines between reality and digital entertainment.
