In the strangest crossover you’re likely to see this year, an Among Us-shaped chicken nugget from the McDonald’s BTS meal has been discovered and is now being auctioned in a bidding war on eBay.
The latest bid is currently at RM286,770 and it will likely increase as the auction is set to end on 4 June 2021.
The seller who goes by Polizna stated that the nugget’s condition is “used”, whatever that means…
However, it will be frozen and then air-sealed to ensure freshness before shipping it to whoever wins. There will be no returns available for the buyer and it will be shipped with USPS First Class from Utah, in the United States.
Having read through the product description, it stated, “This food product has an average expiration of about 14 days and will be delivered prior to expiration.”
Polizna was lucky enough to find an imposter in her BTS nugget box and immediately posted up the ‘crewmate’ on 28 May on eBay. The auction started with a small price of RM4 but shockingly, the first bid went as high as RM48,000.
The chicken nugget is definitely a double whammy as it combines two viral things.
ICYMI, McDonald’s teamed up with the popular K-Pop group, BTS to bring an exclusive, limited menu to selected stores worldwide.
In Malaysia, McD stores experienced lengthy queues at their drive-thrus, stores and even high traffic on the McDelivery app when the meal launched as the fandom tried to get their hands on it. Some Malaysians are even selling empty boxes of BTS meals on Shopee for more than the price of the actual meal.
It will be interesting to see what the final price ends up being when the listing closes tomorrow. At this rate, for all we know it could reach RM400,000 – bonkers!
