More than three months after its launch, crypto exchange Crypto.com’s ad featuring Hollywood star Matt Damon was mocked in the latest episode of the animated series, South Park.
In the first episode of its 25th season, titled “Pajama Day,” the creators of South Park took on people in the United States who refuse to wear a mask and re-associated crypto investments with scams. Characters on the show attacked Damon’s appearance in a TV ad titled “fortune favors the brave,” which featured the actor talking about Crypto.com amidst a digital landscape of historical figures.
“My dad said he listened to Matt Damon and lost all his money…Yes, they all did! But they were brave to do it!”
The criticism is likely related to the loss of over $500 billion in combined market cap in January, with () falling from over $42,000 to $35,000. According to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro, the price of BTC is $36,373 at press time, having fallen more than 40% since Crypto.com published the ad featuring Damon.
