AI Art: Ginger Energy Drink
While exploring the capabilities of Midjourney AI, I decided to create an image for my new product idea – a zingy ginger energy drink. For this first attempt I uploaded my own photo of the drink to Midjourney. After prompting the AI with a description of “ad for energy drink with a happy young woman, modern colors” I waited with bated breath for the result. What I got was… interesting, to say the least. The images were a bit intense.
Luxurious Ginger Ladies & The Curious Case of Orange Juice
Undeterred, I tweaked my prompt to “modern and colorful photo for advertising energy ginger drink with young and happy woman, luxury image.” Alas, the AI seemed to have misunderstood my quest for ginger energy drink advertising, and instead, conjured up images of ginger ladies happily sipping… orange juice. Moreover, one of these women, too, came with a bonus feature – an extra hand. It seems the AI had decided to go full Picasso with the hands.
The Simplicity Conundrum: Where is My Ginger?
I decided to simplify things, asking the AI for a “highly detailed photo for advertising natural ginger energy drink, colorful, simple, and bold.” The output was indeed simple, maybe too simple, as my ginger drink seemed to have mysteriously transmuted into an orange concoction with a straw wrapped in plastic. Also, the ever-present orange slice appeared inexplicably glued to the bottle. Where was the ginger?
The Unexpected Ginger Man Invasion
For my fourth attempt, I requested a new variation of the same prompt. The result? The ginger drink made a slight comeback, but with a fascinating twist – a ginger man. Apparently, the AI interpreted “ginger” as both a flavor and a hair color. While a few strange elements persisted (lemon slice, I’m looking at you), I found these images relatively pleasing, even if they weren’t quite what I had in mind.
The Great Ginger Guys Debacle
Finally, I uploaded one of the previous images and asked Midjourney to describe it. The description was full of details about the color scheme, light shots, organic designs, and the ‘ginger man’. I optimistically used this as my new prompt. The AI, however, had different plans. The result was a series of photos featuring ginger guys… but no ginger drinks.
Well, my journey with Midjourney AI has been hilariously chaotic today. The AI seemed to have a mind of its own, generating images that were unexpected and at times downright silly. But if nothing else, it certainly added a dash of amusement to my quest for the perfect ginger energy drink advertisement. Despite the challenges, the experiment was a fun reminder that technology, like humans, can sometimes get lost in translation.
