A student who died during the Parkland school shooting in 2018 has been brought back to life, appearing in a new voter turnout ad produced by a gun control group.
In the bizarre anti-gun ad from Change the Ref, the parents of 17-year-old Joaquin Oliver introduce a video in which their son, nicknamed “Guac,” is digitally recreated with deep fake technology.
Guac goes on to tell people to go out and vote in his name for pro-gun control candidates – politicians who are typically liberal Democrats.
“Yo, It’s me—it’s Guac,” the CGI animation states.
“I’ve been gone for two years and nothing’s changed, bro. People are still getting killed by guns. Everyone knows it, but they don’t do anything. I’m tired of waiting for someone to fix it,” says the deceased student.
