What is going on here?

Polish social media influencer Marta Rentel sold her "digital love" earlier this month as an NFT to an unknown buyer.  The digital love is that of her online persona "Marti Renti."

Once the transaction is complete Marta's digital persona will go on a dinner date with the lucky buyer.  Again I ask, what is going on here?  Have we entered some sort of parallel universe?

From Insider:

Speaking to Insider, 26-year-old Rentel said she wants to be sure that people distinguish "Marta Rentel" the person, from "Marti Renti" the online persona, whose love she has sold.

"Nothing on the internet is physical, it's a part of my online persona," she told Insider.

According to her website, this philosophy extends to her wider work as an influencer. It reads: "My name is Marti Renti. It's not my 'real' name though, it's the digital version of it, coming from the parallel world where the internet is my stage."

Is this NFT's version of the fucking banana duck taped to the wall?  It kind of feels like it is.  I don't know how someone puts down $250,000 for whatever the hell this is.

I'm clearly not on enough drugs.
