Buttered Sausage refers to a viral clip of actor Gary Busey saying, "Let's talk about buttered sausage," on a web series called The Jeff Richards Show. Despite looking like Gary Busey, the man in the clip was not Gary Busey and was instead an AI-generated Deepfake using the actor's face. Originally posted to YouTube in August 2023, the clip gained increased virality on TikTok.


On August 16th, 2023, The Jeff Richards Show posted a video to YouTube[1] called "Gary Busey with Jayson Thibault 'JRS 71 Deepfake'" in which Jeff Richards was using a deepfake face filter to impersonate actor Gary Busey. The video received roughly 33,300 views in eight days. On the day prior, August 15th, The Jeff Richards Show had posted a clip to TikTok[2] that acted as a promo. The clip was called, "Gary Busey is the jam," and included Richards as Busey saying, "Let's talk about buttered sausage." The video received roughly 1 million plays and 54,300 likes in nine days (shown below).
