Alternative Christmas Message, By A Fake Queeen

by December 25, 2020 0 Comments

On Wednesday December 23, the U.K's channel 4 previewed a video (which was later proven to be fake) of Queen Elizabeth delivering her annual speech. The Alternative Christmas message was created by the visual effects studio Framestore was meant to highlight the dangers of disinformation and fake news. In the nearly minute-long clip, the fake version of Her Majesty sits at her desk in front of a Christmas tree, alongside the family photos that she normally sets out for her annual address. Everything looks mostly familiar, save for the racy jokes about family members. “On the BBC, I haven’t always been able speak plainly and from the heart,” said the deepfake queen, voiced by actor Debra Stephenson. “So I am grateful to Channel 4 for giving me the opportunity to say whatever I like, without anyone putting words in my mouth.” The fake queen added: “2020 has been a challenging year for us all. A year when most of you, thanks to toilet roll shortages, have finally understood how it feels to have a predicament on the throne.” The fake monarch talked about trust before touching on royal family members Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew. All three dominated headlines around the globe this year, albeit for very different reasons. “One thing that has sustained many of us is our families,” the ersatz queen said. “Which is why I was so saddened by the departure of Harry and Meghan. There are few things more hurtful than someone telling you they prefer the company of Canadians.”
