Kanye West might be full of hot air, but apparently there is someone out there looking to capitalize off of it. Correction: He is definitely full of hot air.
The rapper performed a series of concerts for his Yeezus album and someone has tried to make a killing off of the air collected at the show. We really wish we were making this up.
From the official eBay listing for the Ziplock one-gallon bag of hot air:
-The item you are Purchasing is a Limited Edition, 1 gallon Collectable Ziplock bag.
-Free with purchase are the contents which contain AIR From the Kanye West Yeezus Tour (First show, Oct 19th, 2013)
-100% real… Have multiple bags but I want to hold on to one so im selling the rest
At first, the auction had racked up a total of $65,000 before being pulled by the auction service.
The auction for Kanye West’s Yeezus air began last Sunday and accrued a total of 90 bids before it was yanked. It just goes to show you that there is truly a sucker born every minute.
Not only that, but now that others have seen how successful this would-be auction was, they have also mimicked the auction. One eBay user has started an auction for $100.00 using the first auction as a guideline. The item is described:
One of the original yeezus bag of air from Kanye West’s tour.
The bag was waved around at the concert to capture air.
Once the bag was filled, I close it and now we have a bag of air from the concert.
Official, No jokes.
All Sales Are Final!!
Kanye West kicked off his Yeezus tour in Seattle, Washington in October 2013 and ended it almost a year later in Brisbane, Australia.
