We all have loved the iconic Saturday Night Live and it’s amazing to see them making a clip about NFT trend. Though it seems the popularity of non-fungible tokens is not waning anytime soon.
The level at which it has reached was obvious when a question about it was thrown to NBC’s Saturday Night Live host. What we can safely say from last Saturday’s show is that the interest has gotten to its peak.
The popular NBC “Saturday Night Live” sketch comedy last Saturday featured “Janet Yellen,” the United States Treasury Secretary. Maya Rudolph, a former cast member was supposed to play but Kate McKinnon was used to portray her character.
In the show, Kate is speaking at a University economics class, and one of the students asked her to discuss NFTs. The student wanted her to explain what non-fungible tokens were since everyone is making a lot of money.
NFT Oriented Sketches Go Live on Saturday Night Live
Some of the NFTs in the sketch were partly real and partly invented in the cryptocurrency space. There were images of Chuck E.Cheese, the United States Supreme Court of Justice, and Peter Griffen, a popular character in “Family Guy.”
The characters in the show were Peter Davidson, who was dressed as Robin, in Batman. Peter is the student acting as rapper Eminem. Then, Chris Redd’s Morpheus from “The Matrix” and a “man with a mop” Jack Harlow, a musical guest, portrayed. Harlow is the one who explains NFTs as the student demanded.
According to what he rapped, Non-fungible indicates the uniqueness of the coin. He explained that NFTs could only be one, just like humans are unique individuals. NFTs are based on a blockchain– a name for a digital ledger that keeps records of transactions. Harlow also rapped that once an NFT is minted, holders can sell it as art.
How Does the Rap Affect NFTs?
The rap highlighted the surprising increase in unusual artworks, animation & other images flooding the digital marketplaces. Another effect of the rap is that many people in the space will remember this month’s Musical NFT offering by Elon Musk.
The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, shared a video clip of a song showing two diamond hands underneath the moon and having some Shibu Inu dogs around it.
However, the billionaire stated that he doesn’t feel right to sell it as a non-fungible token. Before the end, the three actors were cut out from a still frame in the background & pasted into another background.
