You Won’t Believe How High The Bids Got On eBay For This Harambe-Shaped Cheeto
We knew the hype around Harambe was big, but we had no idea it was this crazy.
A Flamin' Hot Cheeto in the shape of Harambe started out with a bid of $11.99 on eBay according to a tweet from "Fat Kid Deals." The description read:
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
With over 100 bids, Monday afternoon, the offer for a "rare" 1.5 inch Harambe-shaped "one of kind Cheetos" had topped $99,999.
Oh—and the bag was NOT included.
The Harambe hype came after a Cincinnati Zoo took down the real Harambe, a 17-year-old gorilla, back in May of 2016 after a toddler fell into his habitat. Initially, people were outraged, but that soon turned into jokes, memes, and eventually turned Harambe into an internet icon.
I'm not sure who won the bid, but as NY Daily News stated, this is definitely a "snacks out for Harambe" moment.
