Another one to add to the growing list of what is fake and ghey all around us – influencers.
While going through a rough patch, Spanish agency The Clueless decided it had enough of nagging and demanding human clients — so it cooked up an AI model instead.
As Euronews reports, the agency says it used AI tools to create Aitana, a 25-year-old pink-haired woman from Barcelona. They say she looks real enough to fool a human celebrity into sliding into her DMs and asking her out.
And the agency says the gambit has paid off financially, with Aitana netting the team up to $11,000 a month in revenue.
“We did it so that we could make a better living and not be dependent on other people who have egos, who have manias, or who just want to make a lot of money by posing,” Aitana’s cocreator, and founder of The Clueless Rubén Cruz told Euronews.
How much of the world around us is a lie, folks?
An awful lot.
