Some of you might have come across the unsettling yet amusing deepfake video of Steve Buscemi’s face on Jennifer Lawrence’s body at the Golden Globe Awards that’s been circulating around the internet.
Freelance journalist Mikael Thalen had apparently found the clip online and shared it to Twitter on 30 January with the caption, “I’ve gone down a black hole of the latest DeepFakes and this mashup of Steve Buscemi and Jennifer Lawrence is a sight to behold.”

The video has nearly 3.1 million views at time of writing, though prior to his appearance The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Miracle Workers star Buscemi seems to have been unaware that his face was digitally superimposed onto that of the actress.
On Wednesday night, Colbert introduced the clip to Buscemi, who responds with a deadpan expression before joking, “I’ve never looked better.” He subsequently added, “It makes me sad that somebody spent that much time on that.”
Watch the segment beginning at the 4:49-minute mark of the episode below.
