After Snoop Dogg, we have another famous duo of stoners announcing a partnership with the Sandbox. Cheech & Chong finally enter the metaverse with an exclusive Sandbox experience and NFTs.
The announcement was made on April 20 (4/20) that the comedy duo would join The Sandbox and offer an exclusive experience called “My Homies by Cheech & Chong”. In the experience, we will find the duo’s famous vehicles, looks, props, vehicles, and, of course, voxelized cannabis. The cannabis counterculture is strong in the NFT space, we saw it with the recent release of Metawana, a farming and PvP game rooted in the same universe.
Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin are not only comedians. They are also art enthusiasts and cultural icons for a whole generation. Here are quotes from the duo about their entry into the metaverse.
The possibilities of what can be created virtually are endless and we’re very much looking forward to the trips we’ll be taking with our fans to our own dedicated LAND in The Sandbox.Cheech Marin
The metaverse is a new medium for people to create and connect with each other, but in ways they never thought imaginable. Our partnership with The Sandbox will introduce our community to a whole new world, together.Tommy Chong
We are curious to see what will come out of this cooperation. We might have an experience available in the upcoming Sandbox Alpha Season 3. If this is the case, the experience will probably be fun to play just like the Snoop Dogg experience was in the season 2. Let’s hope that this is just not buzz and that the partnership will end up in smoke.
For those of you who don’t know the duo, here are the opening credits of their blockbuster movie Up in Smoke which was released in 1978.
