It’s been analysed many times since, but new artificial intelligence has been used to present a clearer image than ever before.
The clip has been stabilised and de-grained, and the results are clearer than ever. Social media user Rowan Cheung often shares the “latest developments in the world of artificial intelligence” and he posted the footage.
Just as many conspiracists will have feared, the newly treated footage proves that it was clearly just a guy in a gorilla costume all along.
Yes, we all knew that already, but this newly developed footage offers the clearest look at an infamous piece of footage yet – and people were quick to react on social media.
“Nooppe! thats just a dude on his way to a costume party!” one wrote.
Another said: “This is the ai work we needed.”
One more said: “Just some bro out for a stroll.”
“So it’s a dude in a gorilla suit?” a comment read.
