STARMEME is a nod to the 3-year anniversary of SpaceX launching the Tesla Roadster into outer space and highlights the epic moments that continue to drive into the future of DeFi and NFTs. Just like SpaceX’s history-making event, this drop features an ode to the late David Bowie and his seminal ‘Starman’ with each piece of the collection named with lyrics from the song. ​ Featuring 4 works in total, the drop was well received amongst the Don't Buy Meme community and sold out in under 48hrs.

A week before the 3 year anniversary of SpaceX launch, Aymeric had an idea to combine the worlds of Don't Buy Meme and Tesla into an NFT drop. ​ The idea was ambitious - to involve previous $MEME artists (several who are key influential figures in the NFT scene now) and create a narrative of Tesla's Starman adventure as it travels through the universe. Through its journey it would encount various figures and objects from previous $MEME artist drops as well as involve meme lore. ​ 

The plan was to begin with contacting Fewocious, Jon Noorlander, The Blocktimes & Sven Eberwein. Several of the artists had become very well known in the NFT space, so getting a hold of each of them proved to be difficult but once they heard the idea, they all jumped on and quickly provided me with the necessary materials needed to complete the drop. ​ 

Another challenge was the timing. The anniversary date was in 5 days, and there was a lot of modelling, animating, compositing and rendering required before then - as well as creating custom smart contracts, a website splash page and minting the works on the blockchain. Aymeric set out and decided that the main 1/1 work would parody the Futurama title sequence. Being a big fan of Futurama, it allowed Aymeric to revisit his love for the cartoon and pay homage to it in a way that was modern and refreshing. 5 days and no sleep after, he was able to make the dead line and the NFT launch and drop was very successful with all the works selling out in 2 days.

'Let the children boogie' being the auction 1/1 piece featured an array of references from $MEME, Elon Musk and the Futurama universe.
