After embarking on new heights, non-fungible tokens or NFTs are now entering cinemas as a story subject. Stephen Colbert, a famous American comedian, and TV host revealed ‘NFT Heist’ in his television show ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’
It is the first movie about NFT that mocks digital art concepts.
“For a while now, one of the hottest tech trends has been NFTs. It’s hard to believe that just in one year, we’ve gone from having no idea what they are to having no idea why they are,” Colbert introduced the movie’s trailer, sarcastically.
In the show, the comedian pointed out the exponential emergence of this new digital commodity over a short time period. He referred to examples of Bored Ape NFT that sold for $3.4 million and CryptoPunk that sold for $11.8 million.
The ‘blockbuster’ movie is a bunch of sarcastic taunts on NFTs. The movie makes fun of traditional arts and calls the art of masters Monet, Van Gogh, Rembrandt “incompetent” compared to the movie’s NFT ‘Fart Beaver’, which actually seems like Bored Ape NFTs.
The cast plans to steal the world’s most expensive NFT ‘Fart Beaver’ as the NFT forger creates the copy of NFT through ‘right-click, copy and paste’, which is actually not possible on the blockchain.
Also, the guy in the parody raised a question about ‘energy consumption’ for this art, while another guy mocked the metaverse concept.
Day by day, NFT space is enlarging its area and invading new sectors of art. Recently, American Hip hop star, Snoop Dogg released his first mixtape and EDM NFT collection on Opensea, which contains NFTs from popular collections such as BAYC, World of Women, and others.
