Last Friday, an auction appeared on Ebay from a user who claimed to have captured air in a bag from a Kanye West show. Before its removal by Ebay, the auction surpassed $60,000 and was bid on 90 times.
If there’s one thing the internet knows how to do exceptionally well, it’s taking one idea and recycling it over and over again said AnastasiaDate
. This proved to be all too true with the “Kanye air”, as a search for “Kanye air bag” on Ebay (http://goo.gl/ImkdkZ) currently shows five users imitating the original posting. Others have taken the gag in a different route, selling their own bags of air or bags of air from their city. Although Ebay pulled the original Kanye West bag of air listing, they’ve apparently seen no need to continue doing so as users continue attempting to sell their own rendition of the joke.
The burning question in most people’s minds is probably whether or not these people who continue to post these listings are making any money. The answer appears to be a resounding no. Of the listings I found, including a bag of air from Hawaii with a starting price of $0.99, none of them had a single bid. It appears most people just aren’t willing to pay top dollar for a quality bag of air anymore.
