Elon Musk’s Deepfake Soviet Song Takes Over the Russian Internet

Tech billionaire and SpaceX founder Elon Musk successfully sent astronauts aboard the Crew Dragon spaceship to the International Space Station in the first-ever private manned mission into space.

To celebrate, some crafty Russian web users created an eerily convincing deepfake video of Musk singing "Grass at Home."

The popular Soviet song speaks of man's journey to space, but that nowhere is quite as good as our home, planet Earth.
