The ‘Among Us’- Shaped McNugget Will Fetch A Hefty Sum By The Time The Bidding War Ends
You read that right. A McDonald’s Chicken McNugget is up for bid on eBay and the price has already surpassed $50,000 … all because of its resemblance to the ‘Among Us‘ guy.
The strange news doesn’t stop there. The seller discovered the McNugget after purchasing McDonald’s wildly popular BTS Meal, which has gone viral in the last week.
Even the official Among Us Twitter account weighed in on the news …
In case you didn’t know — Among Us is (was?) a massively popular indie game that gained traction earlier this year.
The premise is simple: A group of players must work together to complete various tasks before they run out of oxygen. The catch? One or two of the players are secretly killers who need to pick the others off one by one without arousing suspicion. They are fittingly known as Imposters.
The game’s playable characters are short and stubby two-legged astronauts. You can see why people are comparing it to the viral McNugget.
I’d like to say I’m surprised this eBay listing has blown up, but if there’s anything the last couple years have taught me, it’s that every time you think the internet has peaked, another viral event comes along.
According to the eBay listing, the McNugget will be frozen and vacuum-sealed to ‘ensure freshness’. Strangely, it also acknowledges the product has a 14-day average expiration.
One thing’s for sure — the seller made the best $10 purchase of his life when he picked up that BTS Meal from McDonald’s!
I must say — If I had to choose between an Among Us-shaped McNugget or the Queen’s Golden Nintendo Wii, I’m going to go with the latter.
