Stop posting bags of air to eBay

Monday April 18th, 2016

On Saturday night, we told you about a couple funny eBay listings for a bag of air that was supposedly captured during Kobe Bryant’s final game. One listing made it up to $15,300 before disappearing early Sunday morning.

This isn’t a new idea, someone tried to sell air from a Kanye show for $60,000 once. Regardless, it was a hilarious idea, and got pretty out of hand in a hurry. It was a compelling story that should have stopped once the listing was taken down.

Then, eBay was hit with over 150 bags of air from Kobe’s final game on Sunday. Click on the play button below and look at all these bags of air:

I think the joke’s over at this point.
