Oh eBay, how you have proven that there are so many potentially stupid people with too much money on Earth. Whether or not it’s a string of troll bids or not, a (badly drawn) cardboard cutout of the new Wii U gamepad controller is being auctioned off on eBay, standing at a little over $14,000 USD at the time of this writing. 50 bids have been placed so far, but judging by the bidding history, a lot of the bids are made by people with lower than 10 feedback (though someone with 761 feedback bid on it for $1,005, and another with 145 feedback bid with $2,000). The seller him/herself sells some odd things, but has a decent 104 rating. Who would’ve thought cardboard would be so… sought after?
There’s still a little over a day as of this writing if you’d like to bid on the auction, and you can do so here.
*Update: The listing has been pulled from eBay, gaining nearly $90,000 USD before the removal!
