After it was discovered in the 1300s, you couldn’t walk through a medieval village without people trying to hustle you into buying imitation Shrouds of Turin. Echoing history, yesterday’s revelation that a Hot Cheeto that looks like Harambe existed spawned a number of imitators.
The internet was amazed when an eBay user decided to auction off his Harambe-looking Cheeto (which may or may not look like Harambe), and bidding for the rare artifact shot up exponentially, with the closing offer nearly $100,000.
Smelling that sweet dead gorilla, puffed snack money, imitators and counterfeiters have taken over eBay.
Here are a couple that have popped up, but do NOT be fooled. These are fake.
“This is a brand new Harambe great value cheeto. Obviously since this is the great value version of cheetos the cheeto Harambe is not as crisp as the original cheeto Harambe.”
Please note: That is NOT a Cheeto that looks like Harambe.
“One of a kind Standing Solemn Harambe Cheeto, found in a bag of Original Crunchy Cheetos.
Features a solemn stance and highly detailed facial features. Truly one-of-a-kind. “
Please note: That is NOT a Hot Cheeto that looks like Harambe. That may not even be a Cheeto.
“Harambe king stance
Bag not included
Please note: That is CLEARLY two Cheetos glued together to look like one Cheeto that looks like Harambe.
“I opened up a bag of Cheetos Puffs and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheeto that looks like a poop from Harambe the gorilla. This item is one of a kind! It measures up to about 2 inches in length. This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items! Please Pay with PayPal.”
Please note: $11 is a pretty good deal for a Cheeto Puff that looks like Harambe’s poop.
I would jump on that if I were you.
