John Cleese’s NFT “Sell You Bridge” joke will cost more than $ 33,000
Popular British comedian and actor John Cleese seems to have joined the NFT’s gold rush in jest.
On March 20, Cleese posted a video on Twitter announcing that he would auction off his first tokenized collectibles on the NFT OpenSea market.
He called Cleese a “young unknown digital artist” and described the rise of the NFT as a “cultural moment” offering a “bridge from the past to the future.”
Based on the true story of an American fraudster who fraudulently sold the Brooklyn Bridge to more investors (who were later moved by police after trying to build toll booths on the bridge), Cleese offers his followers a one-time sale of a kind NFT perpetuating its black and white digital doodle depicting the Brooklyn Bridge for a modest price of $ 69.3 million.
Hi! It’s time to meet my alter ego, “Unnamed Artist.” I am pleased to be able to offer you a lifelong opportunity. I am selling my first NFT. Although the bidding starts at 100.00, you can “BUY NOW” for 69,346,250.50! https://t.co/Vuyx4trvPE pic.twitter.com/aC4oSVfGHF

Despite Cleese’s aggressive pricing targets, the token auction began on March 21 for just $ 100, with the auction pushing prices higher $ 33,000 from this writing. The auction is set to complete after another 10 days of bidding.
In an interview with Vanity on March 19 Fair, Cleese remarked to the NFT, “the world has gone madly mad.”
