Internationally renowned actor, comedian, and artist Jim Carrey just released his second NFT on SuperRare NFT marketplace. 


The multi-media NFT, titled ‘Goon in Moonlight,’ is being auctioned off on the NFT marketplace this week. It is designed and curated by Carrey himself, in which he uses paint, drawings, writing, and a vocal performance to bring to life. In addition, the NFT also features digital animation and vocals of Carrey’s daughter, co-produced by NFT studio Big Head Club.  


According to Jim Carrey, ‘Goon In The Moonlight’ is about ‘the unavoidable romance of moonlight.’ He further explained, ‘the Goon is doomed to recoil from memories of lost loves and the agony of regret that can transform any one of us into something loathsome in our own mind.’


The reserve price for the exclusive 1:1 of NFT is priced at US$ 50,000 (around 27 ETH at the time of publication). Part of its ale will be donated to World Central Kitchen — a non-profit founded by celebrity chef José Andrés in 2012. The organization works to provide meals to people in the wake of natural disasters.


The 48-hour auction began on Tuesday and closed today.


‘We are beyond excited about Jim Carrey's second drop on SuperRare,’ John Crain, SuperRare co-founder and CEO, said in a statement. ‘As a visionary artist and performer, it's incredible to see the evolution of his artistic career.’


The release of Carrey’s latest NFT follows closely after his debut NFT ‘Sunshower’, which sold for 62.04 ETH. A portion of the sales benefitted Feeding America — an organization with a network of over 200 food banks nationwide.
