The BBC had a good programme recently, "Ian Hislop's Fake News: A True History".

At one point this short, dumpy, middle-aged man had his face 'Deepfake''d onto the body of a young athletic dancer. It was for comedic effect to highlight the danger since he obviously can't dance like that.

I showed that clip to my elderly mum who likes to think she is cynical and worldly, and she responded, "I can't believe he can dance like that!"

Except she obviously did believe he danced like that.
