NFTs can be confusing, if not for you then for me. However, they enter the world of private aviation, via the art world, and that piqued my curiosity. According to the r/NFT Reddit, which has over 300,000 subscribers, “Non-fungible tokens are poised to change the way value interacts in the digital media landscape in the new Web 3.0 version of the Internet. These unique assets span video games, blockchain domains, representing a claim on physical assets, and even as decentralized identities.
Private Jet Pajama Party was created by Benny Robinson. His credits include a redesign of the Brioni logo in 2016, which he says “worked throughout the company until a change in management put an end to the fun.” It was part of a campaign featuring Metallica. He adds, “The logo was actually a tribute to the heritage of the iconic brand and based purely on finding their original typographic identity and not a heavy metal-inspired design as many assumed.”
Robinson previously collaborated with The Rolling Stones, Snoop Dog and LVMH. The Private Jet Slumber Party is a collection of owls portrayed as rock stars, rappers, athletes and, as you’d expect, crypto visionaries. Night owls are seen relaxing in their large-cabin private jets listening to an iPod, complete with a bucket of PJCFC, an apparent extension of the Kentucky Fried Chicken brand, and a bottle of Jack Daniels, among others. There is also a resemblance to Spanish footballer Sergi Roberto.
According to the PJPP website, you get “probably a rare piece of art. All attributes were hand drawn and crafted by the artist… Holders of the initial TBEN will receive a set of real life pajamas so exclusive and rare that you will want to wear them everywhere. Future collaborations with some of the most recognizable luxury fashion houses are in the works. There are also plans for a Burning Man camp, as well as partnerships with fashion houses.
My Samurais is a collection of 6,969 unique samurai NFTs by Kamiko, a fictional artist and influencer. According to the website, “She is the heir to a legendary line of samurai warriors. However, she does not believe that her life should be dictated by her family’s history. So, she takes her destiny into her own hands and travels the world one selfie at a time.
His favorite way to get around seems to be on private jets (pictured above). “It is the artist’s hope that buyers will print their samurai on canvas and hang them for real-world appreciation,” a spokesperson said.
While the starting price equates to around $420, is the value likely to increase? The rep tells us, “The short answer is that, as with real-world art, value is really in the eye of the beholder. What makes My Samurais or any other NFT collection valuable is highly subjective. He says that because Kamiko likes to travel, she is planning a raffle offering free trips.
Then there’s Pixel Jet. If you’ve ever built an airplane with Legos, these NFTs will bring back childhood memories. The private jet collection is “made in a pixel art style and released as NFTs”. The jets were “created from multiple layers, merged together by the artist”. Each is unique and part of a limited edition of 100, of which 21 have been sold and 30 are currently available.
