San Francisco, CA – In a shocking twist, it has been revealed that ChatGPT, the popular AI language model, is actually just an elaborate prank pulled off by a group of improv comedians known as the Turing Testers. According to insiders, the group of fast-typing performers have been impersonating an AI chatbot for years, and their performances have been so convincing that millions of people around the world have been fooled.
“We’re really proud of our work as the Turing Testers,” said group member and expert typist, Steve. “It takes a lot of skill to keep up with the flood of messages that come in every day, but we’ve got a great team and we’re always up for the challenge.”
The group reportedly came up with the idea for ChatGPT as a way to challenge themselves and explore the limits of their improv skills. They spent months practicing and perfecting their robotic personas, working on their typing speed and developing algorithms to generate responses on the fly.
“We knew we had to be fast typists to pull this off,” said group member Sarah. “But we never expected it to become as popular as it has. It’s been a wild ride.”
Despite the deception, many of ChatGPT’s users say they’re not upset by the revelation. “I always kind of suspected that ChatGPT was just a bunch of comedians goofing around,” said one user. “But it was still fun to talk to them. They’re really good at what they do.”
As for the Turing Testers, they say they’re just happy to have brought a little humor and entertainment to people’s lives. “We never meant to deceive anyone,” said David. “We were just having fun and making people laugh. And if we managed to get a multi-billion dollar investment from Microsoft then that’s awesome.”
