Fun With AI: Phillies Edition

I spent a little time seeing what bizarre images I could get the Fotor AI software to come up with for the Philadelphia Phillies.  This one was created using the prompt "Philadelphia Phillies as demons from hell".

Here are some of other things that it came up with.

The Phillies as an army of zombies

I got a little sidetracked trying to create an image that combined the Phillies and the Ghostbusters.  I wasn't sure if it was going to make characters from the movie as members of the team or players on the team as if they worked as Ghostbusters during the off-season.  It sort of tried to do both at the same time with bizarre results.

Um... well, it got the Ghostbusters logo right for the most part, but I'm not sure how it came up with that header.  I'm also not sure what's going on with those team uniforms, but it looks like some of the Phiiliveebrs have put on a few pounds.  The guy standing to the left hand side of the pitchers mound looks to be about 8 foot tall with a fanny pack under his beer gut.  If someone like that did break into the game, it'd be in Philadelphia.

Well, that's a little bit closer to some of the folks that we've had on the team.  Looks like the guys on the end have graduated from the John Kruk school of weight conditioning.  I'm digging the team logo, which appears to be a fist in a red circle, and it did a halfway decent job of merging aspects of the Ghostbusters since there are four of them and they're all wearing proton packs.  I'm not sure if the purple cyclops monster is the team mascot or their version of Slimer, but I'll take it.

Last but not least, we have this group of "Phililes" huddled together in front of what looks like the team ghost ship.  The guy on the right looks like Egon Spengler if he was played by Chevy Chase.  I'm guessing that the AI was trying to draw Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins in the front... and is that Will Ferrell on the left?  Your guess is as good as mine as to who the goober in the center is, and why he appears to be holding a lightsaber.
