WTF?!! VIRTUAL INSANITY: CGI-generated “Influencer” & “Music Artist” Signs With Largest Entertainment Agency CAA
So now we have literal fake puppets being created to influence future generations of SJW’s and Kardashian-wannabees?

PATHETIC


Miquela, the Uncanny CGI Virtual Influencer, Signs With CAA (EXCLUSIVE)

Miquela has cultivated a passionate fandom & now finds herself in the unique position of both reflecting & influencing culture

Miquela, aka “Lil Miquela,” launched on Instagram in April 2016 without explanation — and today she has 2.2 million followers, plus almost 550,000 on TikTok. The freckle-faced, CGI-generated teen robot is the invention of startup Brud, which positions her as a “Gen Z tastemaker” and has inked brand partnerships for Miquela with companies including Samsung, Prada, Calvin Klein and YouTube.

CAA said it will work with Miquela (pronounced “mih-KAY-lah”) in all areas, including TV, film, and brand strategy and commercial endorsements, raising the prospect of a movie or show featuring the character. WME confirmed that it formerly repped Miquela in partnership with Brud.

Brud claims Miquela’s social status and “unique capabilities” as a virtual personality and singer “have the power to inspire a new generation of entertainment.” The digital character has released several songs, including a recent collaboration with real-life artist Teyana Taylor on single “Machine.”

It’s unknown who provides the voice of Miquela. A Brud rep said, “Miquela, like many artists, uses pitch-correction tools and other software to make sure she’s nailing her performance. She may be a robot but nobody’s perfect.” In an FAQ on Brud’s website, in response to the question “Is Miquela real?”, the company says that she is “As real as Rihanna.”

“Miquela has cultivated a passionate fandom and now finds herself in the unique position of both reflecting and influencing culture,” Brud president Kara Weber said in a statement provided to Variety. “There are unprecedented opportunities for high-fidelity virtual characters to push the bounds of what we’ve seen in any content and advertising to date. We look forward to developing that opportunity with CAA.”

Perhaps AI and CGI created programs can also listen to its music and purchase its products.
You have to wonder why some creepy corporate types would want to do this. Is it just technological narcissism?

Losers. Teaching humans of the most recent generation that it is fine being with a fake human. Look at the movie "Her" and other BS shows/movies signaling that you can fall in love with a non-humanoid facsimile.

It's a trick. They want people thinking CGI makes crappy, obviously fake video when in fact they can create whatever they want and make it look absolutely real.

The only real question is how long has televised "reality" has been totally fake CGI?

People need to watch animations more, they replaced "celebrities" since day one. And they look very lifelike today. See the the 2016 movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. The japanese even have a "digital" singer, Hatsune Miku, that has been around over 10 years. An anime character (not real looking) that is projected as a hologram and does concerts.

Also this quote:

In 2018, Time magazine named her one of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet.

It's not good business. A CGI is more expensive than a talking head even considering hair, makeup, and clothing.

Then again, this is a "virtual" influencer for a virtual audience.
