The Stephen Colbert vFlect
In November 2021, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert wrote an explanation of an NFT on the brown paper bag his lunch came in and called it an AFT to stand for "actual f***ing thing." Terra Virtua created 10,000 numbered copies of this image for an auction to support DonorsChoose, which provides materials for public school teachers.
