There’s going to be a lot of discourse in the coming years to determine what role artificial intelligence is going to play in our society, but at the moment at least, it’s also giving us some comedy gold.
You may have seen the trend lately of using AI voice generation to create funny skits of the recent U.S. presidents trying to play video games together, and that now includes Joe Biden, Donald Trump, and Barack Obama arguing over their Guilty Gear Strive mains.
Triburos recently put together the presidential AI Guilty Gear video, and they all sound like arguments you’ve likely seen on Twitter, Discord and / or our own voice chat sessions with friends before, which just makes it all the better.
In said skit, current president Biden is of course a Chipp main in presumed reference to the real Strive competitor Joe Biden, Obama is quite the fan of Zato-1 and they save Trump’s reveal of being a Leo main until the end.
Like many of these AI presidential skits, Triburos’ doesn’t seem to be made to push any real political message through the work, but rather rely upon the personality quirks of the past and current world leaders and apply them to the gaming world, which most everyone should be able to get some laughs out of.
Obama, for example, goes into his somewhat long-winded explanations about why he likes Zato and his creative combos, but also that negative edge inputs really aren’t that difficult.
Funnily enough, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Barack in the fighting game realm either, as a lost Street Fighter game actually added Obama as a playable character back in 2009.
You can check out Triburos’ presidential debate over Guilty Gear mains below, but you’ve been forewarned, there’s quite a bit of NSFW language included in the skit.
oh yeah- there was actually more to this, but Twitter only allows for videos that are 2:20 or shorter in length, so I had to cut the ending. A bit awkward to show it this way, but here’s the final few seconds pic.twitter.com/r08jjqZ2Yh
