Mr Bean NFTs launched at the same time as the crypto crash: coincidence?

On May 9, Yahoo Finance reported that Mr Bean, the mute buffoon from British television co-created and played by Rowan Atkinson, would make his NFT debut in a joint venture between FOMO Lab and Banijay.

“I think that this is a great idea,” Atkinson said about the project. “Any initiative which not only draws attention to but actually enables access to the fabulous artwork associated with the Mr Bean Animation series, I welcome with open arms.”
