The KoolPals, which is made up of James Caraan, Gb Labrador, Muman Reyes, Ryan Rems, and Nonong Ballilan, is one of the best podcast hosts in the Philippines. People on social media can criticize and attack the KoolPals just like they do other comedians.
As a clever way to fight back, GIGIL Metama, the tech arm of GIGIL Agency, came up with an idea for the KoolPals: instead of just putting up with the constant negative comments, why not turn them into collectible NFT art?
GIGIL Metama chose hateful comments from the social media pages of each member of The KoolPals. With the help of GIGIL Metama, they made 3D digital artworks that are literal translations of each hate comment. Now you can buy these clever and artistic collectibles through Stanible, an app that lets anyone mint moments from their lives and sell them for NFT.
Fans of The KoolPals will be able to buy NFTs on the Stanible app once they load or top up their in-app wallet using one of the many payment methods available on the platform. Then, coins will be in their accounts, which they can use to buy the NFTs they want.
Here are 2 samples of THANKS, HATERS NFT:
“Liliit talaga ng utak. 😂 Mana lang sa nanay ng samabayanang pilipino kuno. 😂
- Rasn Jani Rsl, 2022. Facebook Post Comment.
“SI DAMOLAG LNG MAG-ISA AH?! 😮 NASAAN KAYA SI NOBETA AT SI DORAEMON?! 😂😂”
- Lr Cerc*, September 2022. YouTube Comment.
“Excited na kong lumabas ang THANKS, HATERS NFT dahil mapeperahan ko na ang mga bashers ko!” James Caraan, a member of The KoolPals says. “Abangan nyo din ang mga benefits na kasama ng NFT namin, na sa sobrang sulit, kahit bashers mapapabili.”
(Translation: I’m excited to fully launch THANKS, HATERS NFT because I will be able to make money out of my bashers. Stay tuned for the official list of benefits that come with each of our NFTs. Even haters will be enticed to purchase them because they have a great value for money!)
Jeano Cruz, Creative Director at GIGIL, remarks: “This is an exciting moment for us because we’re always looking forward to work with creative and passionate creators just like The KoolPals, and help more Filipino talents to kick-off their metaverse journey with a unique take that GIGIL always provides.”
