It may smell like pure gasoline, but it could now help Just Stop Oil. The director of Anchorman is selling the film’s original Sex Panther cologne (“Yep, it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good”) to raise money for climate protesters.

The prop is just one memento being auctioned from the personal collection of Adam McKay, who was also behind the climate satire Don’t Look Up, to raise money for the Climate Emergency Fund.

Other lots for sale include a walk-on role in his next film, his prized vintage Marvel comics, and vintage autographed basketball cards, including a one-of-a-kind 1980 Topps Bird, Erving, Johnson scoring leader card. The card has been signed by the actors who play Larry Bird (Sean Patrick Small) and Magic Johnson (Quincy Isaiah) on the HBO show Winning Time.

McKay said: “People in Hollywood auction off stuff they’ve collected for a bunch of different reasons: bankruptcy, a divorce, death, impending death etc. As for me, I’m freaked out about the ongoing climate emergency. Come take advantage of my profound existential fear and get some cool stuff, so we can raise money to fight for action!”

The fund gives money to the A22 Network, a group of 11 organisations in 11 western democracies, including Letzte Generation (Germany), Derniere Renovation (France), Ultima Generazione (Italy) and Just Stop Oil (UK).

Insulate Britain, whose roadblock protests last autumn polarised public opinion but catalysed a national debate around its demand to insulate every home, were also funded by CEF.

Most donations to CEF come from wealthy individuals and family foundations. It was started with a $500,000 donation from Aileen Getty, the granddaughter of Jean Paul Getty, whose petrochemical empire made him the world’s richest man – a source of some controversy in the climate activist world.
