(WTNH) — The air we breathe is free, so why are there four bags of air selling for thousands on eBay? Apparently because the air in those bags comes straight from Kanye West concerts.
Eighteen people have bid on this bag of air driving, the current bid to over $25,000 makes.
“Held open and sealed the air in,” the description reads. “Get the real deal.”
The bag defies supply and demand. West’s Yeezus Tour played 53 shows from from October 2013 to September 2014. If the arenas the tour played hold 17,000 concertgoers on average, that means 901,000 had a chance to package and breathe in some of that now valuable air.
The $25,000 bag isn’t the only one on eBay claiming to contain Yeezus Tour air. Other bags up for auction currently sit at $10,100, $5,000, $2,000, all the way down to a penny. The auction for another bag had gotten up to over $60,000 before it was taken down. That bag caught the attention of West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West.
Yeezus Tour air seems to be the only concert air that’s a hot commodity. There’s one bag of air that’s supposedly from Beyonce’s tour up for auction. Searches for bags of air filled at concerts of other popular artists, such as Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, and Jay-Z, came up empty.
