The hype prompted some eBay users to try to try to capitalise on the event – we’re used to seeing merchandise or maybe a celebrity’s discarded item being flogged online, but a bag of oxygen, really?
A number of alleged attendees from the big night have listed “bags of air” on the auction platform, with starting bids ranging from $100 (£72. 72) to $3,200 (£2,327.02) as of Saturday morning UK time.
The latter also offers the option of “buying it now” for a cool $4,400 (£3,199.65) – that’s for anyone who can’t wait to get their hands on some hot air.
A screen grab has also been widely shared on social media of a listing starting at $3,333.33, with hopefuls given until next Wednesday at 11:15pm (BST) to place their bids.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, not a single offer had been made on any of the options at time of writing, and Yeezy listeners have instead taken to Twitter to express their confusion and joke about the bizarre auction:
