BART’S BLOCKCHAIN ADVENTURE: ‘THE SIMPSONS’ SKEWERS AND SALUTES NFTS

Published

Source: NFT Culture

In its latest “Treehouse of Horror” episode, “The Simpsons” once again proves its finger is firmly on the pulse of contemporary culture, especially with its satirical lens focused on the digital and NFT (non-fungible token) revolution. With over 10 million viewers, the beloved series is not only reflecting the current zeitgeist but is also shaping it.

The episode opens with a sardonic nod to the digitization of art and museums, a cheeky acknowledgment of the world’s pivot towards virtual experiences. This shift, much like the transition from traditional to digital art ownership through NFTs, encapsulates the evolutionary trajectory of cultural consumption.

As Bart delves into a digital metaverse, the show astutely weaves in references to NFT heavyweights like Pak, XCOPY, and Beeple’s “Everydays” and “Human One,” alongside nods to popular PFP (profile picture) projects, including the much-hyped Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). These references are not just name-drops but a recognition of the influential artworks and projects that are redefining ownership and art in the blockchain era.

A DEEP DIVE INTO DROP MECHANICS

The drop mechanics introduced by Trevor Jones exemplify a unique fusion of digital and physical art realms, underscored by augmented reality (AR) elements. His offerings—Solace, Serenity, Sanctuary, and Stillness—range from 1/1 auctions to limited editions, ensuring that both high rollers and dedicated fans have a chance to own a piece of his art. Notably, the auctions are designed to reward high bidders with original framed paintings, while others can still cherish signed, numbered prints enhanced with AR technology.

Similarly, the collaborative effort by Lucho Poletti, Zhuk, Mindzeye, and Brilly introduces a ranked auction open to all, alongside exclusive editions for 33NFT Pass holders. These mechanics emphasize inclusivity and community engagement, hallmarks of the 33NFT ethos.
