When we talk about the cult classic, the 1983 film Scarface, Al Pacino will definitely pop up in your mind. No one can forget the piece of the remake where Pacino introduced us to his friend. The ‘Say hello to my little friend’ scene is as an iconic one, and one can say that nothing can replace it. Can you imagine some other actors instead of Pacino as Tony Montana there in the movie or even in that iconic scene?
Keanu Reeves As Drug Lord Tony Montana
Well, all these discussions are here because the Internet’s boyfriend, Keanu Reeves, is here to portray the Cuban refugee-turned-drug lord Tony Montana. No, not again a remake of ‘Scarface’ but it’s a deep fake of Reeves that is released and making him famous as a powerful drug lord.
Just don’t bother to imagine, watch the video here:
A Deepfake And Viewers’ Reactions To It
A video was published on Jul 24, 2019, from the YouTube channel named ‘Derpfakes’ portraying Reeves as Tony Montana. The deepfake is getting viral with acclamation in one hand and criticism on others. The acclaimers are sending the request to help them out with some other deepfake videos. One comment down there jokingly says “All the characters in the final battle of the Avengers: Keanu Reeves play endgame. Is it possible to do this?”
One user suggested “I have a suggestion for a future video… Michael Bolton (the singer) but in Office Space as the character Michael Bolton”.
Well, some Pacino fans cannot even imagine the Scarface without him. One comment over there stated the same “I still can’t get Al Pacino out of my mind in this one. It’s the heart of the man which Deepfakes can’t get. I think the best Deepfakes are when personalities match.” Some even identified the flaws as the “Only problem with this is eyebrow and open eye movement; otherwise, it’s near perfect.”
Well, apart from all these, it’s super entertaining to watch Reeves as the drug lord. For his fans around the world its a kind of bonus.
