It's a real thing with real bids. A jar of air from a Stone Roses concert is currently going for $96,787 on eBay with 90 bids logged. Not only is it just some goddamn air with a sticker on it, it's not even old air. The air was ... captured? collected? lovingly scooped? ... at a concert in June 2016.
The Stone Roses exploded in in 1989 when their debut album hit. They were instantly the most important band on Earth to many diehards, particularly in the U.K. With insane expectations for their follow-up that would be impossible to live up to, the album was delayed due to a legal battle. When it finally arrived in 1994, it was met with disappointment.
Nonetheless, they achieved a rare cult status, and with the price tag attached to this jar of air you might expect that the air is from a concert in their heyday, but nope, it's from a 2016 show in Manchester. The band reunited in 2013 by headlining Coachella, to the confusion of many under 30, so this isn't even air from their first show back.
