Steve Harvey raps 'suck it' in viral deepfake video that shows his face edited over Megan Thee Stallion's body
Myster Giraffe is back with their deepfake shenanigans and this time their unsuspecting victims are Steve Harvey and Megan Thee Stallion.
In a video posted across the mysterious creator's social media accounts, Steve Harvey's face is edited over Megan Thee Stallion's body to create a hilarious performance of the artiste's song 'Big Ole Freak'. The original performance had Megan performing the track as part of a 25-minute set on NPR's Tiny Desk series.
'Big Ole Freak' released as a single last year, taken off Megan's 2018 EP 'Tina Snow', and samples Al B. Sure!'s single, 'Nite and Day' from his debut album, 'In Effect Mode' as well as Immature's song 'Is It Love This Time' from their debut album 'On Our Worst Behavior'. The song performed well commercially and received favorable reviews from critics, being referred to as everything from carnal rap and a club banger to an unapologetic new era of hip-hop.
But what really stands out about the track is its risqué lyrics, which include lines like "Suck it then look in his eyes." Seeing a family man Steve rapping these words is what really makes this video both confusing and hysterical.
"Someone used their amazing skills to put Steve Harvey’s head on Meg the Stallion rapping and that’s why I love the internet," tweeted one user, while another stated, "Lol this is the best thing I’ve seen all quarantine," adding, "I’m currently crying."
The mystery creator behind the video, Myster Giraffe, shared the video with the caption, "The things you find in quarantine. @IAmSteveHarvey we always knew you was a #BigOlFreak," and it just elevates the comedic nature of this entire piece. If the name Myster Giraffe rings a bell, that's because this isn't their first viral creation.
They previously caught the internet's attention after Will Smith shared a video of his face on Cardi B's as she tells the story of how her name came about. Smith asked, "Y’all are doin’ Too Much!! Hahaha... This is SO GOOD. Anybody know who did this??" Cardi B responded on the post, asking "Who did this to us," to which Smith said, "I don't know... but as soon as I find them They're Hired!!"
But it appears Myster Giraffe has taken things to the next level this time, because "Stephen Thee Stallion," as fans are calling this glorious new artiste, has taken the internet by storm.
"WHY DOES THIS EXIST??!??! I love your mind, though," tweeted one fan, while another shared, "I don't even know where to begin or how to begin. This is real talk future sh*t, stuff I would actually expect to see in the year 2020. No flying cars yet but d*mn Steve Harvey lookin' fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
There were, of course, some viewers who were disturbed by the seamless mashup. "That's terrifying," tweeted one, "I’m so confused..." said another, and one user stated, "You need to go to prison for this one."
"I can’t tell if this is Steve dressed as Megan or Megan looking like Steve," tweeted another user, and one stated, "I will never look at Megan the same."
But one user stated what is really on everyone's minds: "What I would give for a reaction video of Steve watching this." Because, admittedly, nothing but Steve's reaction could make this even funnier.
