Harambe-Shaped Hot Cheeto Sells for $99,000 on eBay
Some very cashed-up Harambe fan has splashed out $100G on a corn chip that sorta looks like a gorilla.
Someone with an apparently deep love for tragic gorilla Harambe has reportedly agreed to pay nearly $100,000 for a single corn snack that sort of looks like him.
In the single craziest example of Harambe fever that has spread internet-wide since the primate was killed by zoo officials in May, someone appears to have bid $99,900 for a gorilla-shaped Flamin' Hot Cheeto on eBay.
Bidding on the spicy cheese corn snack began at $11.99 on January 28 and ended early Tuesday morning with the astonishing winning bid.
The listing showed a picture of the Cheeto, which resembles a gorilla in profile, side-by-side with Harambe climbing a tree.
Seller valuestampsinc wrote of the surprise find in the product description:
"I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla. This item is one of a kind! It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length. This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!"
The seller, who lists a home base of Burbank, California, did not immediately respond to a request for an interview.
Likewise, the person willing to spend nearly $100G on a Cheeto was not immediately identified.
