The three creator-backed NFTs will release for auction on OpenSea on Tuesday May 25, 2021
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, May 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On May 25, 2021 at 1:00pm EST, Gary Brolsma, the creator behind the viral â€œNuma Numaâ€� video, Christopher â€œRandallâ€� Gordon, the creator of â€œThe Crazy Nastya*s Honey Badger,â€� and Jordan Scott, creator of the â€œTwo Pretty Best Friendsâ€� TikTok, will be releasing the NFTs representing their videos on OpenSea through a partnership with NetGems.
Each NFT is â€œ1 of 1â€� and contains an embedded video from each creator that certifies the NFT as the only copy to ever be released and backed by the original artist. Further, these NFTs will be the only original videos to exist on the internet; Brolsmaâ€™s Numa Numa video was previously removed from its original posting site, Newgrounds, and the creators behind the â€œTwo Pretty Best Friendsâ€� TikTok and the â€œThe Crazy Nastya*s Honey Badgerâ€� video will be removing their videos from their respective platforms at the end of the auction.
These NFTs are the first of many historic internet videos that will be released as part of the NetGems NFT collection, which is viewable on OpenSea.
About the inaugural NFTs and videos:
The Crazy Nastya*s Honey Badger: The â€œCrazy Nastya*s Honey Badgerâ€� video, also known as â€œHoney Badger Don’t Care,â€� was created by Cristopher Gordon (portraying his character Randall,) and has since been viewed nearly 100 million times. Christopher is excited to be bringing his NFT to market during the 10-year anniversary of the video: â€œI wanted to really celebrate in style by releasing the NFTâ€¦ the timing couldnâ€™t be better.â€� Gordonâ€™s NFT also includes the trademark to the phrase â€œHoney Badger Donâ€™t Careâ€� and voiceover of the video of their choice and an outgoing voicemail message by Randall.
Two Pretty Best Friends: The iconic TikTok, created by Jordan Scott (@jayrscotty), has reached 54 million views, not including views from duets and sound usage, and was a viral craze in Fall 2020. Jordan saw the excitement around NFTs and knew he wanted to be a part of it: â€œafter seeing how the crypto community values viral content like mine, I knew I had to team up with NetGems to release Two Pretty Best Friends,â€� he commented. The buyer of Jordanâ€™s NFT will also receive the hoodie he was wearing in the clip and the opportunity to collaborate with him on a TikTok.
Numa Numa: Gary Brolsmaâ€™s Numa Numa video has totaled over 1 billion views across platforms, despite having been taken down from its original platform, Newgrounds. Numa Numa showed the world what virality could be in the beginning days of the internet, and now Gary is excited to bring his NFT to market, stating â€œI’m very excited to be listing Numa Numa as a NFT and I think it’s cool that people can own a small piece of internet history while also supporting the original artists.â€� The buyer of Garyâ€™s NFT will also receive a personalized video and dance created by Gary himself.
