A McDonald’s Chicken McNugget sold for nearly $100,000 on eBay on Friday because of its uncanny likeness to a video game character.
The nugget came from a meal package that was done in partnership between McDonald’s and the South Korean pop band BTS. The seller found it resembled a character from Among Us, an online multiplayer game.
The user, who goes by the name Polizna, told CNET the nugget has an "unmistakable correlation with the actual character, even including an odd bump on the back that would represent the backpack."
Originally listed for only $0.99, after 184 bids, it sold for $99,997.
“I had figured it would get somewhere around $50 but nothing like this,” Polizna said.
For that price it must come with Szechuan Sauce.— Xbox (@Xbox) June 1, 2021
Polizna said the nugget will be frozen and air-sealed prior to shipping to ensure its freshness.
