Someone Stole Seth Green’s Ape NFT And Now He Can’t Make The TV Show It’s Based On
My knowledge of NFTs is pretty limited, but I have to admit it brings a smile to my face whenever someone loses money on them. This week, that person is Seth Green, who is now unable to continue work on a new TV show after the NFT it was based around was stolen.
According to Buzzfeed, the actor and producer was robbed of several NFTs after falling for a phishing scam. This has completely cocked up plans for his new animated TV series which was to include characters from his expansive collection of NFTs.
Here’s a teaser for the show that Seth Green played at VeeCon recently:
When the scammer robbed Seth Green of his NFTs earlier this month, he lost the commercial rights to the show’s cartoon protagonist, a scruffy Bored Ape named Fred Simian, whose likeness and usage rights now belong to someone else. Watching that trailer, it seems the scammer did us all a favour TBH.
“I bought that ape in July 2021, and have spent the last several months developing and exploiting the IP to make it into the star of this show. Then days before — his name is Fred by the way — days before he’s set to make his world debut, he’s literally kidnapped.”
Seth is doing what he can to get the NFT back:
Well frens it happened to me. Got phished and had 4NFT stolen. @BoredApeYC @opensea @doodles @yugalabs please don’t buy or trade these while I work to resolve:@DarkWing84 looks like you bought my stolen ape- hit me up so we can fix it pic.twitter.com/VL1OVnd44m

Of course, we’ve been in this game long enough to wonder whether this is all a publicity stunt to bring eye balls to the show. If this gets “resolved” soon and the show gets green-lit again, I’m gonna assume this was all part of Seth Green’s master plan. Which would be quite clever because I don’t think anyone had heard of this show until now. I hope it’s for real though because the concept of NFTs makes me sick and I’m pretty sure will go down as the dumbest bubble/scam in history when all is said and done.
