A startling video of former President Obama calling President TrumpDonald John TrumpSunday shows preview: Trump sells U.N. reorganizing and Kavanaugh allegations dominate Ex-Trump staffer out at CNN amid “false and defamatory accusations” Democrats opposed to Pelosi lack challenger to topple her MORE a “complete dipshit” is a coordinated stunt from filmmaker Jordan Peele as a public service announcement to warn about fake videos.

The video appears to show Obama beginning to issue a warning. However, viewers don't hear the former president's voice; instead, Obama’s lips move in sync with Peele's voice.

“We’re entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point at time — even if they would never say those things,” Peele says voicing the former president.

“So, for instance, they could have me say things like, I don’t know, [‘Black Panther’s’] Killmonger was right!” Peele says as Obama. “Or, Ben CarsonBenjamin (Ben) Solomon CarsonBen Carson appears to tie allegation against Kavanaugh to socialist plot The Hill's Morning Report — Sponsored by United Against Nuclear Iran — Kavanaugh, accuser say they’re prepared to testify Report: A third of Ben Carson’s appointees have no housing experience MORE is in the sunken place! Or, how about this: Simply, President Trump is a total and complete dipshit.”

BuzzFeed reported Tuesday that the video was meant as a warning to the public regarding the threat to digital misinformation and how technology allows for videos and faces to be distorted.

“This is a dangerous time. Moving forward, we need to be more vigilant with what we trust from the internet,” Peele says as Obama.

The PSA was created by Peele and his brother-in-law, Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti, according to BuzzFeed.

Peretti told BuzzFeed that the project was to help raise awareness that videos can be manipulated and aren't always a safe source of information. He said that people have become more aware of fake news sites and fake written news in recent years, but not everyone realizes videos can be manipulated in the way the PSA shows.

Peele, who last month won an Oscar for "Get Out," has impersonated Obama on multiple occasions on his Comedy Central show "Key & Peele."

Peele urges news consumers to “stay woke” and only use trusted media sources.

“It may sound basic,” Peele says as Obama, “but how we move forward in the age of information is gonna be the difference between whether we survive or whether we become some kind of f---ed up dystopia.”
