AI-Generated Pizza Ad Impresses, But Visits Uncanny Valley

Over the past few months, we’ve seen how large language models like ChatGPT generate text copy, image generators like Stable Diffusion create images on demand, and even perform text-to-speech. . An enterprising developer named Pizza Later combined five different AI models to create a live-action commercial for a fictional pizza restaurant called “Pepperoni Hug Spot.”

The resulting video we’ve embedded below is both terrifying and impressive. There is even some dialogue and decent background music. However, some characters have a little more facial expressions and dead eyes.

Obviously, the quality of the output leaves something to be desired. Sometimes objects seem to blend into each other. My son said it looked like people were eating pizza that had grown out of the plate.

They all seem to live in the uncanny valley. And the somewhat incoherent script reads like text from another language improperly translated into English (which it wasn’t).

However, it’s impressive to see how close these technologies are to full-fledged readiness. In a short time, you will find that photorealistic video images become more convincing.
