“Schooling” The Metaverse On Free Speech, Tanked Gil Schoolies NFT’s Use Comedy to Fight Cancel Culture
With Freedom of Speech Under Attack in and around the world, Tanked Gil Schoolies, a 10k digital collection of unique Human/Fish lovable characters and web3 entertainment studio, clown around the Metaverse and internet promoting free speech through their edgy animated sketch comedy and a virtual comedy club.
And they hold no punches.
Founder Margarita Gil states unequivocally, “you will never get an apology from us, as we are staunch free speecher’s and believe comedy has been victimized along with other forms of speech because it is “offensive.” Adds Margarita Gil, “But isn’t this the entire point of a free marketplace of ideas?!! It is what separates us from the rest of the world. ”
“We are equal opportunity offenders,” Margarita Gil continues, “no subject is taboo, no institution is sacred. Free speech has been watered down, so it is not free anymore. Our Web3 Project – “The Tanked Gil Schoolies,” is on a mission to change that.
The Tanked Gil Schoolies created a space (Metaverse) aptly titled “Class Clowns” for everyone with a passion for Comedy – including stand-up comedians, creators, artists, leaders, networkers, influencers, and everyone in between – to vocalize their true unfiltered views without fear of being canceled. Says Gil, “You can hate us or love us, and vice versa, but you and us, we will be heard.”
And you can be heard right now, on stage, during the beta launch of the Class Clowns Metaverse happening this week. “We encourage anybody who is curious, frustrated, and interested in our project movement or who simply wants to sound off to join us. Check our Twitter feed or discord community @tankedgilschool.”
Powered by a 10k-sized NFT collection, The Tanked Gil Schoolies promote a fun, careless, welcoming, and downright juvenile community that accepts others exactly as they are.
The collection’s characters are cast in a number of scripted comedy properties, including an animated series and a feature film. Many short-form sketch comedies can already be seen on their youtube channel, Tanked Gil Schoolies. Plans for the continued build of the nirvanaverse are on their roadmap at www.tankedgilschoolies.com
In Class Clowns Virtual club, weekly (and, in some cases, daily) events will be hosted along with giveaways to encourage engagement. They are also hosting a major event in support of their launch, where they will welcome a large Web2 comedian (name to be revealed soon!) to kick off the grand opening of their NirvanaVerse.
The NirvanaVerse is much more than a “safe place”; in fact, it’s a space that welcomes opposing views and welcomes “healthy” discussion from all angles. The Tanked Gil Schoolies believe that there will indeed be disagreements, there will be opposition, and maybe even “heated” debates – but that’s exactly what they welcome.
Their fully submersive “NirvanaVerse” allows you to customize a 3D character model using your style, personality, and creativity. Much more than a pfp (profile picture), instead a walking display of one’s uniqueness and quirkiness showcased to tens and thousands of others to interact with.
Their grand opening event takes place on NOVEMBER X – all you need to attend is a computer, no extra hardware, no fees – just the expectations to have a great time!
As time progresses, they will continue to invite and onboard notable names in the Comedy and entertainment space.
Do you believe in Freedom of Speech? Do you believe that everyone should have an opportunity to vocalize their opinions? Do you believe that healthy discussions are, well… Healthy?
