On March 14th, 2022, the artist formerly known as Creed Bratton (and occasionally referred to as “Moron”) was digitally burned and sent into the metaverse. This moment marked the first ever digital transition of not only a physical art piece, but the art encapsulated in a living, breathing person: Creed Bratton. After the burning, he returned in the form of a non-fungible token, also known as an NFT, not to be confused with a type of mushroom, and will henceforth be known as CryptoCreed. Starting Thursday, March 17th, 2022, you can buy your very own CryptoCreed at bitski.com.
Why have one Creed Bratton when you can have two? We take you behind-the-scenes into the burning ritual that freed Creed from his mortal body and sent him into the metaverse. We introduce Open the Portal, the visionary team that created a clay version of Creed fit to be burned to smithereens. We watch as they roll Clay Creed out of the studio and almost lose him forever to the ground, and we get one last look at human Creed before he’s blasted into the digital world.
Get a sneak peak into the making of the very first NFT from the Alien Chicken team. Before there were aliens, there were the mere humans who helped make Creed Bratton’s dreams of transcending into the metaverse a reality - and this is how they did it. Hint: you’ll see a lot of lights, a lot of laughs, and a few other business opportunities that could have popped up along the way (who wants the Creed Bratton Calendar 2023?!) When you’re done watching, feel free to answer the question we all want to know - “how much weirder can it get than this?”
