AI Turns Vegans Into Carnivores in New Steak-umm Campaign

Tombras creates "DeepSteaks" to warn the public about misinformation

It’s no secret that collaboration is essential to growth, but the how of it isn’t always so clear—and it's the understanding of how that is a true competitive advantage. Join Adweek X, a uniquely formatted event on December 4 in LA, to unlock fresh perspectives, true collaboration and growth.

Take a peek into a focus group of vegans, where a handful of participants talk about what it means to them to follow an animal-free diet.

Yet moments later, these same test subjects change their tune entirely, professing that “meat is like a religion for me,” “when I see someone eat a salad, I just feel sorry for them,” and “I truly believe that meat can heal the rift in this country.” 

They also, apparently, scarf down a massive “100% real beef” and cheese sandwich made with Steak-umm.
