A popular non-fungible token (NFT) depicting an overly possessive and clingy girlfriend created by Laina Morris was auctioned for 200 worth of ETH in NFT. Laina Morris, AKA ” overly attached girlfriend,” courtesy of her famous YouTube video, has just auctioned off her first ever NFT to the tune of 200 ETH, an equivalent of $417,200 at the time of writing this report. In the advert, Morris wrote, “I am Laina, the creator of the meme.” She added that any winner of the Overly Attached Girlfriend NFT is assured of never being alone.
3F Music had earlier won two bids before Morris’ auctions
3 F Music placed the bid that won the NFT a few days after winning an NFT worth 350 ETH, an equivalent of $730,562 advertised by The New York Times. Morris’ YouTube video went viral in 2012 after sharing a satirical video of her acting like a clingy and possessive girlfriend wooing her boyfriend with a sweet song. Meanwhile, he seems to be unaware of what exactly is going on. But after the video, Morris had been virtually unheard of since then.
April 1 was the date of the NFT mint, and followers might have seen it as a mere April fools’ joke. The first bidder placed just 0.5 ETH, an equivalent of $1,000. However, as interests in the auction started growing, 3F Music first placed 30 ETH ($62,000). Today, in less than 20 minutes, the bids rose to as high as 200 ETH placed by 3F Music. However, it is still unclear the exact product that the buyer actually paid for. We are unsure if 3F Music can derive any meaningful benefit from the pic or the meme that depicts the creator’s “creepy face.”
3 F Music bought Allison Harvard’s Creepy Chan
On Sunday, 3F Music also purchased two other NFTs bearing meme pics of Allison Harvard, also known as ” Creepy Chan,” paying 35 ETH, an equivalent of $73,250. and 40 ETH, which is worth $83,500. Harvard also claimed that the NFTs enabled her to certify and “stake claim” on her personality. Allison stated that apart from the money, the NFT enabled her to verify and claim her image. She recalled how she had never had the opportunity to earn enough from the internet, adding, “I feel that I’ve taken back my entitlement today. I thank all those who have contributed to my success,” she ended.
Meanwhile, it is uncertain if minting the NFT could prevent memes from circulating or let her ” have a say” on how the products would be used. “You guys did wonderfully well,” Morris expressed her gratitude to all bidders that helped in making the auction a reality. She also thanked 3F Music, the winner of the bid. “Sincerely, you may not understand how this will contribute to my success.” She added that she was extremely grateful and “blown away,” saying, “this is a cool and wonderful gift ever.”
