Have you been waiting for the chance to purchase a Harambe-shaped Cheeto? Well, it looks like you just blew your big opportunity.
Early Tuesday morning, a Cheeto that looks an awful lot like Harambe sold on eBay for just under $100,000. According to the seller, valuestampsinc, the Harambe Cheeto came in a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. And while the auction didn’t include the original bag, it was obviously still quite a steal for "anyone who appreciates rare items." The bidding for the Cheeto started at just $11.99 before ballooning all the way up to $99,900 thanks to the 132 bids it received.
This was the original listing for the Cheeto:
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.
This item is one of a kind!
It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length.
This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!
If you’re kicking yourself right now for missing out on the auction, don’t worry! You’ve still got options. There’s a screenshot of the auction as it was about to end that’s going for more than $10K (and really, who wouldn't want that in their camera roll?!) as well as an off-brand version of the Harambe Cheeto. It’s not an actual Cheeto and, according to the eBay listing, it’s "not as crisp" as Cheeto Harambe, but you're not going to want to eat it anyway. It’s currently going for the much more affordable price of $10.50. So what are you waiting for?
Still: R.I.P. Harambe.
