Check out "Stupid", the brand new video from G FLIP

Check out "Stupid", the brand new video from G FLIP
G FLIP today shares the incredible and slightly disconcerting video for 'Stupid'. The video uses deep faking technology and shows G Flip as various people in different situations. 

Speaking of the video, director Lachlan Dickie says: 
"Deep faking keeps popping up as memes all over the internet, mainly just silly face replacements of celebrities - but I wanted to explore it in a manner that was much darker and more akin to an episode of Black Mirror than an instagram post. This is something that could cause some moral issues in the future. G Flip's song explores an interesting self-reflective tone, so I thought it'd be a great match to quite literally create a world where there are nothing but alternate G Flips that have gone down many different paths, life choices, or embody different parts of our personalities conscience."

G Flip says: "For the 'Stupid' video film clip, directors pitched ideas to me. To be honest, the majority of them were extremely similar involving a couple fighting and then reuniting but this one director had the most whack ideas. Straight up bizarre. His name's Lachlan Dickie. I spoke to him on the phone and told him the crazier, the better, and we ran through some ideas. He came up with a concept of having everyone look like me and I asked him if it were possible for my head to be on everyone else's, but I wasn't sure if there was tech for that, turns out there is, it's called deep fake and it's f**kin crazy!! So here is an extremely strange and stupid film for my song 'Stupid'. I love what Lach did, what a legend."
 
G Flip has recently received a J Award nomination for the triple j Australian Album Of The Year for her debut LP About Us. She's also scored three ARIA Award nominations including Best Breakthrough Artist and Best Independent Release, capping off a truly incredible year for the Melbourne-based multi-talented performer. G Flip is currently lapping the country on her sold out national album tour.
