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.
“The election in November is the first one I could have voted in, but I’ll never get to choose the kind of world I wanted to live in, so you’ve got to replace my vote. … Vote for politicians who care more about people’s lives than the gun lobby’s money. Vote for people not getting shot, bro. Vote for me, because I can’t. We’ve got to keep on fighting and we’ve got to end this.”
On YouTube, critics voted down the video 10 to 1, with users appalled the gun control group would use the dead student as a political prop.
