An eBay auction for a bag of air from right here in Williamsburg is up to over $20,000 in just one day of bidding. From the auction:
The air was collected in the summer of 2015 and the mystery oxygen could’ve come from anywhere–perhaps it circulated at our trendiest bars and brunch spots like Enid’s or the Wythe Hotel. Or maybe it spent some time on the set of Lena Dunham’s hit HBO show, ‘Girls.’ It could’ve even been breathed in by our hippest resident celebrities like Sky Ferreira. That store on Bedford Ave. that sells only fedoras? The hot sauce store on Wythe? We’re not saying! There’s truly no telling where in “The Burg” this air came from!
Before you freakout yes this is a joke and no one is actually going to end up spending exorbitant amounts of money on a bag of air….except for European tourists. Place your bid here.
