The current highest bid is 2.00 ETH or $6,568.74. However, there are 5 hours of auction left, so the price will undoubtedly rise!
What is the Coffin Dance meme?
The Dancing Pallbearers or the Coffin Dance are a Ghanaian group of pallbearers based in the Greater Accra Region of southern Ghana. The lead pallbearer is Benjamin Aidoo, and the group has gained worldwide attention due to its unique service.
In March 2020, the group became an Internet meme when the video was uploaded with Tony Igy’s EDM song “Astronomia.” The meme is often associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, it is typically the subject of a dark comedic internet meme and paired with people who suffer various mishaps.
2021 was the year of the meme NFT. It reached its peak when Elon Musk shared the NFT entitled “Love in the time of Web3,” which sold for $20,004,71. But it seems that meme NFTs are back with the Coffin Dance NFT auction!
