Clerks director Kevin Smith is getting in on the NFT craze – in a big way.
Smith has launched an NFT business called ‘Jay & Silent Bob’s Crypto Studio’, which is releasing non-fungible ‘Smokin’ Tokens’.

Some tokens include exclusive artwork, passes to a sneak preview, or even a cameo in the upcoming Clerks 3 – which includes a storyline about cryptocurrencies.
I believe whoever buys it will sell it to a streamer, at the very least. They’re buying an NFT that also grants them ownership of the physical media files for KILLROY WAS HERE – so in an effort to support any type of theatrical distribution, I’m happy to do press/host screenings. https://t.co/MsfeVl8oTD

Jay and Silent Bob’s Crypto Studio opens this Wednesday!
I talked to @USATODAY about the KILLROY NFT auction that will figure prominently as the spotlight of the second drop in May. But next week, it’s all about them Smokin’ Tokens! https://t.co/7NnJa5PVSE https://t.co/2uJc7MSAMS

But the rarest and most expensive token gives the buyer the exclusive rights to stream and distribute Smith’s upcoming horror anthology Killroy Was Here – including the movie’s “actual hard-drive files.”
Do you understand the NFT thing? Have you bought any? Do you really need an NFT for exclusive film rights – wouldn’t an ordinary contract work?
