Lil Uzi Vert And Future’s ‘Wassup’ Video Stars Deep Faked Celebritites

The video for “Wassup,” the collaboration between Future and Lil Uzi Vert from Lil Uzi’s album LUV Vs. The World 2, has officially arrived. Playing off the preview of “All Bad,” from Future’s new album High Off Life, which was presented by with a URL scavenger hunt that would only play 30 seconds of the track before relocating it to another URL on the list provided at the teaser site, the “Wassup” video employs an animated lyrics video, which keeps the same techy theme.

Using deep fake algorithms, the video features a “Boom” (a parody of Zoom) call between a number of hip-hop stars — and political figures like Kim Jong Un, President Obama, and Trump — who all mouth the word “wassup” over the chorus. Uzi’s verse simulates a Google image search, superimposing his face over famous portraits like Steve Jobs, the Mona Lisa, Michael Jackson, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Meanwhile, Future’s verse zooms out a bit to observe the computer’s user, a busty woman lounging around half-dressed. The video closes as the laptop crashes thanks to a bunch of error messages.
