I know there is endless hype around AI. And as I’ve said previously AI chatbots are nothing more than a next-word-prediction algorithm (that loves to lie). But sometimes when you mix different AIs together, you get something really funny.

Enter Reddit user SharpCartographer831 and their AI-Generated pizza commercial. This person used a series of AIs to write the script, do the voiceover, and generate the video for a 30-second ad.

You can watch it here:

It’s incredibly weird, creepy, and funny because it’s so random and dumb. But in some weird way, it works.

One thing that didn’t even occur to me is the time it would take to actually film something like this. One person commenting on this video breaks it down as follows:

So, my perspective as someone who works with video for a living…

The field of photography and videography is going to be completely upended within the year.

This video right here, the dude said took him 3 hours to make everything. To shoot this you’d be looking at like two days shooting multiple locations, multiple time of day
