No, this is not a joke. People have begun to sell on eBay what they claim are sealed bags of air collected at shows from the hip-hop star's 2013 and 2014 Yeezus Tour. One listing, which was posted by a person in Pennsylvania earlier this week and which has since been removed, had the bidding price up to $60,100, with 90 bids made. Shipping? Just $3.58.
Obviously, it would be very difficult to prove that people are actually selling—and bidding on—real air from West's concerts. But at least 15 such auctions have since been listed this week.
