The hilarity erupted this morning (Aug. 24) when McAfee tweeted that he had accepted an advisory position with China Zombie to create and promote their CZ Coin ($CZ).
MCAFEE: ‘I WANT NO FLACK’ FOR PUMPING BIZARRE CRYPTO
McAfee told his Twitter followers not to criticize his forthcoming marketing of the ICO(initial coin offering). Why? Because he promises it’s going to be obnoxious and in-your-face.
McAfee cautioned his fans that, “You have been warned. I want no flack. Thank you.”
Basically, China Zombie insists that zombies exist and can be taught to use cryptocurrencies.
I have accepted an advisory position with @China_Zombie to help them with the CZCOIN ($CZ) creation and promotion. I will be shilling them heavilly. You have been warned. I want no flack. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/w0a4vJe8Lp— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) August 24, 2019
McAfee added that while he’s obviously shilling the China Zombie ICO because he’s getting paid, he says he’s “fascinated” by the zany concept.
“I only take jobs that fascinate me,” he claimed. “I’m fascinated. Who wouldn’t be?”
Many say: I'm shilling @China_Zombie 's CZ coin so why don't I shill any damn thing for money? No. I only take jobs that fascinate me. A company that, in all seriousness, insists that zombies exist and can be taught to use Crypto currency – well – I'm fascinated. Who wouldn't be? pic.twitter.com/KF5BAZOWzI— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) August 24, 2019
It’s unclear where China Zombie’s corporate headquarters are located. However, McAfee says the company is flying him to its Bhutan research facility next week, where he’ll allegedly be exposed to “real zombies.”
.@china_zombie 's response to my first criticism. In all fairness – they are flying me to their Bhutan research facility next week where they alledge I will see the real thing (real zombies, real researchers, real facility). I am reserving judgement until my eyes can inform me. https://t.co/70FA0rZJpg— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) August 24, 2019
Here’s a suggestion: If McAfee channels Michael Jackson’s zombie music video “Thriller,” maybe the ICO could take off.
