South Park Ruthlessly Mocks NFTs and Crypto in New Special
Popular adult animated sitcom South Park has ruthlessly ridiculed crypto, non-fungible tokens and the broader investment community with scarily accurate precision in a new exclusive special released on Paramount+ earlier today.In an epic scene that went viral on crypto Twitter, adult Kyle and Stan stand with a firefighter in front of a burned-out building with dead people in it that the latter describes as "complete murder, carnage."The firefighter says that a guy in a suit showed up to pitch investment opportunities and people started chanting "hodl." He recalls that NFTs began mooning and their owners started accusing other people of right-clicking them. Then, people ended up beating up each other over pumps-and-dumps, "FOMO" and "flippening" calls. The guy in the suit, of course, "waltzed away like nothing happened."
