Bidding for a Cheeto shaped like a gorilla killed last year at a Cincinnati zoo reached nearly $100,000 online Monday afternoon. User valuestampsinc listed a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto for sale on eBay that resembled an orangey, powdery version of Harambe, the slain gorilla later memorialized in countless Internet memes and jokes. As of Monday evening, more than 100 offers had resulted in a current bid of $99,700.00.
The story behind the Harambe Cheeto was equally alluring:
“I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla,” the item description read, noting the Flamin’ Hot Harambe measured about 1.5 inches in length.
The bag was not included.
