Debunked: Ron DeSantiss Campaign Did Not Use AI to Alter Video

Ron DeSantis’ campaign ad featuring fighter jets flying overhead was created using normal video editing, not AI, despite speculation following a video trolling DeSantis using AI.

Ron DeSantis used footage from a political rally for an ad, like numerous candidates before him. On the other hand, to make it a little more epic, he added digital fighter jets flying overhead.

And because the ad debuted less than 24 hours after Donald Trump used Artificial Intelligence (AI) to create a video trolling DeSantis for his botched campaign notice on Twitter platform, some people assumed the Florida governor used Artificial Intelligence (AI) to add in the jets.

On the other hand, that’s not the case, a individual familiar with the matter informed Decrypt. The ad used only normal video editing.

The one-minute ad, which dropped yesterday after DeSantis announced his candidacy, showcases the Governor speaking at a November event in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The twist? A squadron of fighter jets seems to fly overhead as DeSantis delivers his speech. Nonetheless, video footage from the original event outlines that there were no jets present that day.

It makes sense that the campaign used digital editing tools to insert the fighter planes, rather than Artificial Intelligence (AI). And once dealing with generative Artificial Intelligence (AI), videos tend to appear choppy because each frame is a distinct image generated individually, which is why they tend to lack the consistency achievable with professional Artificial Intelligence (AI) editors like DaVinci Resolve or Adobe Premier.

That stated, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been used in political ads before. The Republican National Committee released a 30- Second ad that did not feature any real images; all of them were made using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The ad painted a dark and scary version of the United States if President Joe Biden were reelected, showing images of China invading Taiwan, migrants trying to cross the United States border, and soldiers lining the streets of a shut-down San Francisco.

Nonetheless, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in political ads has raised concerns. Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) recently introduced legislation requiring the disclosure of AI-generated content in political ads. Clarke thinks that current laws are insufficient to guard the American public from the  capacity societal disruptions caused by the rapid deployment of AI.
