Everyone knows how a lot I like silly AI issues. I’ve carried out a number of articles about AI generated photographs, and Joe and I as soon as went face to face to create a few of the most baffling Muppet footage attainable. I’ve lastly bought entry to the GOOD AI generator, so extra of that coming quickly.
One space I haven’t explored a lot is AI generated writing. Placing in a immediate and letting a pc resolve what to say. And since I’m tremendous lazy and nonetheless drained from transcribing that complete Jim Lewis interview, I made a decision to place in a couple of prompts and see what the web site FRASE may give you.
I began with one thing easy; an article titled ‘The lifetime of Kermit the Frog’. That is what it needed to say:
The character Kermit the frog was created by Jim Henson in 1955. He was the primary Muppet to look on tv and he turned well-known for his catchphrase “I’m not afraid of any competitors.” Kermit was born in New York Metropolis and grew up in Connecticut. His dad and mom have been each puppeteers and so they taught him the way to communicate and sing. Kermit was the one Muppet who spoke with out singing. He had a deep voice and will speak at excessive speeds. Kermit was recognized for being a bit dimwitted and naive. He was typically seen carrying glasses and a bow tie. Kermit was a very good good friend of Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear.
So we bought off to a robust begin. Kermit was infact created by Jim in 1955, however I don’t recall his well-known catchphrase ‘I’m not afraid of any competitors’. Wasn’t that what he mentioned in The Muppet Film? No, wait, I’m pondering of ‘Gone with the Schwinn’. We don’t know a tonne about Kermit’s household, however I’m undecided they have been puppeteers, and I’m fairly positive Kermit sings with a rubbery voice, not talks with a deep voice. However hey, they find out about his basic glasses and bowtie!
Let’s be taught a bit of about Kermit’s mates:
Miss Piggy was Kermit’s finest good friend. She was a pig and he or she beloved to eat. Her favourite meals was spaghetti. Fozzie Bear was Kermit’s second finest good friend. He was a bear and he favored to play jokes on folks. He would faux to be a tree after which bounce out at somebody. Fozzie was Kermit’s sidekick. He was at all times making an attempt to get Kermit to do issues. He would say issues like “Come on Kermit, we’ve got to go now!”
You possibly can argue that Miss Piggy is Kermit’s finest good friend, with their on-off romantic relationship giving them a bond they don’t share with anybody else. She does take pleasure in meals, however spaghetti? Has Fozzie ever dressed as a tree to leap out at folks? I’m so confused.
Alright, let’s put in one other immediate. Let’s say ‘Gobo Fraggle’s Information To Life’;
Oh. Oh god. This gave me 14 guidelines, 12 of which aren’t publishable on this time slot.
Okay, so, it seems FRASE was a bust, I attempted a couple of extra prompts and it didn’t generate something remotely humorous or attention-grabbing, so I as an alternative headed over to RYTR, a distinct and much better web site. This time I requested for a humorous description of an episode of The Muppet Present, visitor starring horror character Michael Myers;
The Muppets are again for his or her ultimate present (not realizing it was their ultimate present) and they’re in a theater ready to get routines checked out. Sadly, one of many Muppets, Fozzie Bear, is pulled in entrance of the curtain. The theater lights go up and Michael Myers is in his Halloween costume. It seems he’s there to scare folks and stayed after hours. George Lucas exhibits up after the curtain pulls again to supply Michael Myers some cash (he was informed to take action by the proprietor). He tries to inform him that the Muppets are scheduled to carry out quickly, however he gained’t budge so as an alternative they provide him a job at Disney’s studios together with his personal line of films. Michael says he’ll give it some thought after which leaves by a door on the stage set. Fozzie emerges from behind a set piece backstage and runs again into place for rehearsal.
Now, I’ve to level out, nowhere in my immediate did I point out Disney or George Lucas. Does George know Michael Myers? It’s attainable they’ve run in to one another at cool Hollywood events, I assume? Is Michael a secret Disney princess? DID FOZZIE EVER FINISH HIS REHEARSAL!? Discover out subsequent time on Muppets Haunted Mansion 2 perhaps?
Alright, let’s do one other one. Let’s search for a brief story about Massive Fowl and Elmo going for a picnic. However I’m going to ask it to be crucial;
After a protracted day within the metropolis, Massive Fowl and Elmo are hungry and must go on a picnic. Elmo suggests they head out to the nation, however Massive Fowl is just not so positive they need to go that far. After some dialogue, they comply with drive all the way down to an area park within the metropolis.
As soon as they get there, they solely discover one picnic desk open. It’s surrounded by ugly people who find themselves consuming pizza and pretzels with a lot of mustard. When Elmo asks for some hen nuggets from the kids’s menu, he doesn’t get any mustard both. This makes him very mad.
However much more than the anger, Elmo worries if this can have an effect on his relationship with Massive Fowl as a result of he failed the picnic check of having the ability to take pleasure in it regardless of the place you might be or who you share it with.
After speaking about this earlier than bedtime collectively, Massive Fowl assures his good friend that regardless of the place you go or who you might be with you ought to be your self.
I imply, look, I’m not a fan of ugly folks with mustardy pretzels both, however come on, Elmo! He appeared mad that he didn’t get any mustard for his pretzel, but absolutely he may have simply requested the ugly folks for some? A minimum of it had a pleasant healthful ending with being your self and all that stuff. Until you’re ugly with a mustardy pretzel.
Alright, yet another. Let’s head to Fraggle Rock, and ask for an ‘inspirational’ piece about Boober Fraggle doing laundry with Pink;
Boober Fraggle decides to assist Pink Fraggle do the laundry and train her about folding, as a result of it’s essential for social abilities. They spend all day doing the laundry after which Boober has to get some emergency work so he leaves Pink Fraggle to complete. When he’s gone, Pink Fraggle decides to make a load of ‘weightless’ laundry that she may simply fly by air together with her highly effective toes and have it dry in 1 hour. She begins by throwing all the garments in collectively with out folding them in any respect.
A number of hours later, when Boober is again, he’s horrified to see that Pink Fraggle blended up every little thing and located a technique to change the water cycle for only one load of washing, thus making it unimaginable for Boober’s sister Booboo or any of their mates to clean garments in anyway. His frustration will get one of the best of him and he yells “Pink you’re fired!”
I’ve plenty of questions, and so they’re virtually all about Boober’s sister Booboo. Is that this piece inspirational? It’s making me marvel if I could make my garments dry in an hour with my toes. Additionally, I don’t know what it’s about Fraggle Rock and AI, however it gave me yet one more piece that was fully unpublishable however was genuinely hilarious.
Give me some extra prompts on social media and we’ll see what different bizarre Muppet ideas we will give you, eh?
