Asking AI to generate a video of the Tour de France. 1. This is hilarious (the explosion!) 2. This illustrates how/where LLM image generators fail. Like, this has the vibe of biking but the details & physics are totally wrong. An uncanny Grand Canyon.

@timothyreed notes: "Every scene is a crash of some kind!"

That's probably because the video clips this LLM trained on are crashes โ€” i.e. the exciting bits. Which hints at how LLMs trained on local and national news would skew their news coverage in favor of 1) murder, crime, & immigrants, 2) stories of pets rescuing their humans from burning buildings, or 3) stories of immigrant pets rescuing their humans from burning buildings and then murdering them.

I saw this first thing in the morning on Instagram and I laughed way too hard. Agree that clearly the bits that make it online are the crashes, though I've also come across that clip where a horse jumps a fence and joins a bike race a million times, so I'm kind of surprised a random horse didn't make it in.
