Swiss comedian Patrick Karpichenko, better known as “Karby”She posted on Twitter a trailer for the popular fantasy movie “Heidi”. Swiss children’s story. He created this using the Gen-2 AI based video generator. The result is strange.

Heidi “Holy” in strange pictures

Perhaps the video went viral because everyone found something interesting in it. The comedian believes that almost half of them feel comfortable watching the video because artificial intelligence cannot create realistic animations so easily.

The other half finds the video funny and celebrates it. “It’s the ironic contrast between the innocent, nostalgic, almost sacred Heidi, and the disturbingly bizarre images that emerge from her that make people laugh.” Many people still remember the animated series.

Lots of tweets from Japanese

The video has now spread to Japan, where this “self-ironic adulation” from Switzerland is well received, he points out.

Salma Cuillas also noted this. She’s an app expert, content creator, and has dealt a lot with AI. “Above all, many Japanese people shared Karby’s video.”

The Heidi animated series comes from Japan

She attributes this to the fact that the popular animated series Heidi was produced there. It is still broadcast regularly on Japanese TV and gets great ratings.

Heidi’s trailer reflects many of the ideas non-Swiss have about our country. “The fat cow and the grassy landscape are symbols of the comic book world one imagines Switzerland to be and inspire people beyond borders.”

Hundreds of clips edited together

But Kuyas doesn’t just see the content as being responsible for the fact that the AI-generated video gets so many views. Artificial intelligence performs probability calculations that generate new images and ideas that we are not aware of together. “This has a wonderful effect on us on the one hand, but also disturbing on the other hand.”

Karby says he has long found working with AI exciting. “I am currently working on a TV series on the subject of artificial intelligence, where I am experimenting a lot with how AI deals with Swiss clichés.” Heidi’s trailer was also created.

AI video creation still works well. “There are still many errors that seem fantastical and sometimes even annoying to us.” He generated hundreds of these clips for the Heidi trailer and then edited them together.
