In its initial episode of 25th season titled “Pajama Day,” South Park creators took on citizens of US to spurn down to wear masks and again linked cryptocurrency investments with frauds. Personas in episode countered Matt’s appearance in a TV spot tagged “fortune favors the brave,” where Damon talked regarding Crypto.com, amidst virtual landscape of historical entities.
One of the characters in show said during episode that his dad listened to the actor, and lost all his funds,” where another character replied that, everyone did, but they were courageous doing so.
