On Tuesday, June 14th, Bitcoin’s price fell below $23,000 for the first time since December 2020, and many people are blaming Matt Damon for their losses. Months before the price of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether plummeted, the actor starred in a viral ad for crypto.com. Cryptocurrency prices are currently at historic lows and are struggling to gain any upward momentum, forcing some companies, such as crypto.com, to lay off a large portion of their workforce.
Damon walks around a hall of CGI mountain climbers, explorers, a Wright brother, and some astronauts in the cryptocurrency commercial ‘Fortune Favors The Brave.’ He encourages viewers to be brave, commit, and take a chance by using phrases like “mere mortals” who “embrace the moment” in “moments of truth” as they “peer over the edge” in the 60-second TV commercial, which aired during NFL playoff games and the Super Bowl.
