Pope’s Viral AI Image Creator Talks About His Funny Jacket Concept

The man behind the viral AI image of Pope Francis wearing a white puffy jacket has spoken up about his inspiration for the hilarious concept. The AI-generated image fooled many people into thinking that the Pope had actually worn the jacket, but in reality, it was a fake image created by a computer algorithm.

The creator behind the image, known only as “Midjourney,” stated that he was inspired to create the image after seeing a similar jacket being advertised online. Midjourney explained, “I’d been thinking about creating an AI-generated image of the Pope for a while, and when I saw this jacket I knew I had to include it in the image. I think the contrast between the fancy papal robes and the casual jacket is what makes it so funny.”

The image quickly went viral, with many people sharing it on social media and even news outlets reporting on it as if it were real. However, the fact that it was a completely fake image did not stop people from enjoying the humor behind it.

While some critics have expressed concerns about the use of AI-generated fake images, Midjourney argues that his creation was harmless fun. “I don’t think anyone was truly fooled by the image,” he said. “It’s clearly not real, and I think people were just enjoying the joke. Plus, I think it’s cool that AI can be used to create something as silly as this.”

Overall, the viral AI image of Pope Francis in a white puffy jacket was a bit of lighthearted fun that brought a smile to many people’s faces. While some may question the use of AI-generated fake images, it’s clear that in this case, the harmless humor outweighed any potential concerns.
