The release of new live views of Shiba Inu’s Metaverse at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, have generated a lot of excitement in the SHIB community.

Shiba Inu X Paramount Pictures?

But Marcie Jastrow, the Shiba Inu Metaverse’s advisor, had an even bigger surprise in store for the SHIB army. As Scorcia, a popular SHIB community member revealed in a tweet that was confirmed by Jastrow, the SHIB Metaverse team has met with Ted Schilowitz, the futurist at American film production company Paramount Pictures, to discuss opportunities for collaboration.

Kusama’s Reaction

Scorchia’s tweet even caught the attention of Shiba Inu chief developer Kusama. The SHIB community member shared a picture with Paramount’s Schilowitz and commented, “probably nothing” – a phrase often used ironically in the crypto community to refer to potentially important developments. Kusama tweeted four “big eyes” emojis to presumably show that he is paying attention as well as expressing interest and excitement. He also added three hashtags #shibmetaverse, #shibarium and #paramount to the tweet and shared a South Park GIF in which Randy Marsh says, “Maybe nothing, maybe everything.”

Success at SXSW Festival

In an interview with Zach Humphries, Jastrow further revealed that the SHIB : The Metaverse at SXSW Festival was a huge success. “I had more conversations with brands in the last 2 days that want to be in our metaverse than ever.” On the conversation with Paramount’s Schilowitz she disclosed: We were sitting with the head of futuristics of Paramount Pictures and I am like we need to do a licensing deal; I got Rocket Pond coming up next…
