Dont Miss Out On Crypto | Larry David | FTX


A Super Bowl ad featuring Larry David had never before been seen. This wasn’t like the iPhone where we keep getting “leaked” hints and teasers as to what’s about to drop. Instead, cryptocurrency exchange FTX went old school and planned to surprise spectators with the renowned comedian during the actual game.

The Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator was depicted in the advertisement, “Don’t Miss Out on Crypto,” as a sceptic of such historical innovations like the wheel, the fork, the toilet, democracy, the light bulb, the dishwasher, the Sony Walkman, and, of course, FTX.

The commercial helped FTX become one of the Super Bowl’s most-retweeted brands and was named “Most Comical” by USA Today’s Ad Meter.

A little over three months before this advertisement ran, Bitcoin would reach its peak value. Since then, it has been slowly declining. The collapse of the Terra/Luna currency and the insolvency of the cryptocurrency hedge firm Three Arrows, among other things, have made 2022 a difficult year for the sector. Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder and CEO of FTX, resigned after a string of controversies, and the business filed for bankruptcy. Bring on the jokes: Larry was correct.

There are many concerns underlying the sudden rise and collapse of FTX, but one is how, for at least the past year, the majority of the brand’s advertising—and the majority of brands associated to cryptocurrencies—have leveraged fame and hype to paint cryptocurrency investment as a historically wise choice.
