Mr Bean, a British icon, is sadly bumbling his way into new territory

Mr Bean, a British icon, is sadly bumbling his way into new territory ...

A line of NFTs has now been created, which includes a blundering, buffoonish, bamboozled British icon who guffaws about the place and encapsulates the silliness of the British sense of humour. No, not our Prime Minister, a figure much more beloved than him: Mr Bean.

A comedian starring Rowan Atkinson, Mr Bean was first brought to life in a television series in 1990. Since then, there have been two feature films and an animated series starring the character.

There are now 3,333 Mr Bean NFTs, because nothing is sacred and no childhood memory - no matter how deep cherished - will remain unsullied in the pursuit of profit.

Since God is dead and we have murdered him, Yahoo Finance reports that Mr Bean NFT''s shareholders will also have access to phygital rewards. In this instance, it means you''ll receive "redeemables including a signed, unpublished hand-drawn still of Mr Bean from the first animated series."

We''re yet to see the actual NFTs, but given Mr Bean''s adolescent ability to look after artwork, I''d do your things wrong.

Atkinson, Mr Bean, has expressed his support for the project. "I believe this is a great idea," he said. "Any initiative that provides access to the amazing artwork in the Mr Bean Animation series, I welcome with open arms."

Many NFT customers are selling for just a fraction of what they were paid for. Scams and hacks are rife within the community, as $6 million was lost in a phishing event. One NFT project has reportedly run off with over $1 million of investment funds. It''s just not so non-fungible after all.
