Popular television show Saturday Night Live explained the NFT craze with a parody in a new skit aired today. In the video, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, and singer Jack Harlow become one of the top agenda items in the cryptocurrency industry.
In the video, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, and singer Jack Harlow unveiled NFTs, a special type of token that has become one of the most important agenda items in the cryptocurrency industry. Parodying Eminem’s hit song Without Me, Davidson started by stating that NFTs are like a “real monopoly” where “everybody makes a lot of money.”
Chris Redd, dressed as Morpheus from The Matrix, listed several examples of what could be added to an NFT: “Non-fungibles can be Ron Funches’ GIFs eating Lunchables or pictures of Colin Jost’s annoying face. It could be digital footage of Digimon’s crimes or a photo of a nun using Nintendo Switch. ” Though superficial for comedy, the sketch managed to reflect the most fundamental aspects of NFTs. In a nutshell, it’s the only one of its kind, and some people are willing to pay large sums of money for it. Crypto whale Vignesh Sundaresan, aka MetaKovan, recently paid $ 69 million for an NFT artwork created by digital artist Beeple.
