Someone just managed to sell a small plastic bag they claim contains air from a recent Kanye West listening event for a whopping $7,600 on eBay.

It’s no secret that the Kanye West brand is synonymous with commercial success, but not even that explains how someone can pay almost $8,000 for an empty plastic bag simply because it is in some way related to the popular American artist.  West recently hosted the much awaited Atlanta DONDA listening event on the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta, and one fan allegedly lucky enough to be in attendance took the opportunity to make some money out of it. He took a plastic zip-lock bag, labeled it as ‘AIR FROM DONDA DROP’ on eBay, set the price at $3,330.00 and waited for the bids to roll in. And sure enough, roll they did…

Listed as “Bag of Air from DONDA Drop LAST ONE OFFICIAL Kanye West – Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” the eBay listing also included a photo of the small plastic bag being held up during the event as proof for interested buyers. The photo is pretty blurry, but even if it was crystal clear, how does that prove anything, really? It’s an empty bag remotely associated with a Kanye West event…

But the ludicrousness of the listing was apparently lost on some Kanye West fans who launched into a bidding war to secure the “precious” item. In the end, one of them managed to snatch it for a cool $7,600. Did they end up paying that crazy amount? We don’t know, but stranger things have happened.

In fact, bags of air from Kanye West concerts and events have been selling online for over five years, with some 2015 eBay listings showing empty plastic bags selling for up to $65,000.

Oh, and in case you were curious, the DONDA bag doesn’t even come with free shipping. The buyer has to pay $4 for that…
