The item remains one of the most watched items on eBay, and is on one of eBay's pages of "most popular" items.
Steven Toth, 23, who placed the auction on eBay, says that he knows "people buy some really weird things on eBay that they later say were a big waste of money, so I thought it would be funny to see how far I could take it. I wanted to see if anyone would be interested in an auction for a big a waste of money."
Strange eBay auctions have been getting national attention recently. In one case, a woman auctioned off advertising space on her forehead to the tune of ten thousand dollars. This latest national attention grabbing auction really pushes the limit of what people will buy on eBay.
"People buy everything on eBay, but it will be fun to see how far this goes!" Mr. Toth said.
The auction is available for bids until July 17, and is availible for viewing over here.
