It started with one eBay (EBAY) listing last Sunday for ‘Kanye West Yeezus Tour Air’ listed for $5. The plastic zip lock bag, which was filled with air presumably from a Kanye West concert quickly popped in price.
More than 90 people bid on the item bringing the Yeezus-oxygen to $60,000. Copycats began popping up, filling eBay with Kanye-breathed air.
Some sellers are even including their ticket stubs with the plastic bags to prove the air’s authenticity.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, weighed in on the new crop of sales on Twitter:
“WOW he can sell anything! Lol RT “@Femail: $65,000 for a bag of air from a Kanye West concert”, she tweeted.
The bizarre memento has now been removed from the auction site.
