World’s largest douchebag releases NFT assortment

12/17/2021

Overlook all of the hype over genuinely revolutionary expertise and inventive magic. Douchebags are right here to break the NFT celebration for everybody!

All over the world, douchebags are stepping into NFTs in an enormous means.

Now it’s true that there are 1000’s and 1000’s of authentic artists within the rising non-fungible token area, and that exactly none of them are Paris Hilton.

And certain, NFTs are a probably world-changing phenomenon that had been simply declared ArtReview’s strongest entity within the artwork world, although in all probability not on account of the “catastrophic failure” that resulted in John Cena promoting simply 37 unhappy copies of a one thousand-NFT drop.

There could certainly be every kind of use-cases for NFTs — such because the censorship-proof preservation of historic data — that can trigger future generations to surprise why it took us so lengthy.

However don’t let any of those vital developments detract from absolutely the douchebaggery that’s at present being unleashed on the world by individuals like Jacob Chansley.

You keep in mind Jacob, proper? This man.

Yep, the man who participated in an revolt designed to forestall the certification of a duly-elected President in a peaceable democracy has launched a talentless, money-grabbing, opportunistic-weasel assortment of excruciating tat, hoping to money in on his transient second of notoriety whereas he rots in jail for the following 41 months.

Chansley’s assortment of 1,006 Shamans is billed by his PR rep (insurrectionists get PR reps?) as a possibility for patrons to hitch “a group of people intrigued by the intersection of politics, crypto, media, tribalism, and Shamanic tradition.”

It isn’t billed as “A prison douchebag attempting to grab your money utilizing solely the ability of completely shameless exploitation”. However you say tomato.

The gathering itself is intriguing, in a lot the identical means that you just may surprise why multi-colored meals go in… and but all of them come out the identical coloration.

Chansley has a wide range of douchey costumes that go along with his insurrectionist character ‘QAnon Shaman’ — one being a horned fur hat, one other being an orange jumpsuit. Sadly the latter doesn’t appear to make an look within the hackneyed, half-assed and by-product assortment of behorned cartoons.

The vast majority of these lazy and unimaginative illustrations seem to have been created “below unique license” by an “nameless artist”, which ought to excite collectors all over the place.

The press launch, which has much more creative advantage, notes that the collection accommodates “by no means earlier than seen photographs of Jacob donning crypto attire” and — get this! — that it “exists to spark a productive and considerate discourse.” Due to course it does.

Cointelegraph reached out for additional remark to Chansley’s press consultant after receiving this intriguing message: “Glad to supply extra quotes and context from Jacob and his mom in the event you’re inquisitive about masking this”.

Yep, if there’s one individual we wish to speak to greater than the QAnon Shaman, it’s his mother.

The gathering is on the market someplace, though I’ll be damned if I’m going to hyperlink to it. However have at it, in the event you should — simply keep in mind that in the event you’re shopping for an NFT to help a crazed right-wing conspiracy theorist and Trumpian lunatic… he later expressed disappointment in Trump.

And that is regardless of his lawyer’s insistence that Chansley “had a keenness for Trump that was not in contrast to the primary love a person could have for a lady, or a woman for a person, or man for a person.” Oddly that does not appear to be illustrated both, although it is price speculating on what it’d seem like.

Nonetheless, you might at all times purchase Melania’s cobalt eyes.
