Daily Digest | Headshots every day

For reasons known to very few people, one Indonesian animation student’s face became a hot commodity last week.

Hey. Brady here.

Sultan Gustaf Al Ghozali was a university student studying animation. Then, over the course of four days, he became a millionaire. Accidentally.

The medium? NFTs. The project? A selfie a day. The reason? For Ghozali, it was just for fun. For the buyers, we have no clue.

The numbers here matter less than the ensuing reaction. Memes were made. One man wrote a song about Ghozali—as part of his own “one song a day” project that has been part of his life for 13 years. Corners of Twitter and Reddit had a lot of fun following the development.

In one of his tweets after the sales, Ghozali said, “You can do anything like flipping or whatever but please don’t abuse my photos or my parents will very disappointed to me [sic].” You can tell he’s a sweet guy.

In a space that is rife with speculation and random fads, sometimes you can still make someone’s day, maybe even be part of an action that changes their lives.

Khamila had the story about Ghozali’s 15 minutes of fame. You can read her report here.
