There's A Fierce Bidding War Over A Harambe-Shaped Cheeto


[UPDATE] The final winning bid was for $99,900, at around 10:53 p.m. PST.

We once saw someone put up an Ebay listing for a sandwich bag of air from Kobe Bryant's final basketball game as a Laker, so nothing should surprise you.

As of this writing, there is a fierce Ebay bidding war over a Flamin' Hot Cheeto that looks a hell of a lot like a gorilla. There have been 115 bids by 36 people trying to get their hands on the snack to end all snacks.


The photo on the listing even shows a gorilla hanging from a tree in the exact same position as the Cheeto, just to enhance the visual.


It's described as "rare" which I guess is accurate, and they even threw Harambe's name in there, because everyone knows all gorillas on the internet are Harambe.

The seller said:


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 Burbank, California listing will be up until Tuesday, at 12:45 a.m. PST, and people have bid over $99,000 for it.

My money's on this being a hoax. I don't know how Ebay regulates scammers, and fake bids, but if someone's actually trying to spend 100 grand on a Cheeto, we might as well give up on this world.
