Jenkins the Valet is one of the most well-known apes at the Bored Ape Yacht Club, famous (or infamous) for sharing the stories of bored ape at the BAYC.
“It feels like just yesterday when I posted my origin story to Twitter back in May,” Jenkins wrote in a Medium blog post. “Apes were going for 0.5 ETH, and I had 30 followers. I’d been feeling burnt out and was looking for a creative outlet. I could never imagine that story would lead us here.”
The valet has certainly come a long way in a few short months. In that time, he has launched his NFT project, “Jenkins the Valet: The Writer’s Room”, that currently has 2,200 holders, according to Opensea.
Since the launch of his project, Jenkins the Valet has taken another huge step, signing with the Talent Agency, Creative Artists Agency.
Creative Artists Agency (CAA), “is the leading entertainment and sports agency, with global expertise in filmed and live entertainment, digital media, publishing, sponsorship sales and endorsements, media finance, consumer investing, fashion, trademark licensing, and philanthropy,” according to the companies LinkedIn. Some of CAA’s clients include Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, among many others.
“From the moment I set out to build the Jenkins brand, I knew that I was foreign to Hollywood and needed a juggernaut in my corner, Jenkins explained in his Medium post. “In that sense, it’s been months because everything I’ve been doing has been to lay the foundation for a move like this. However, my relationship with CAA has been official for 1–2 weeks now. They “got it” immediately.”
