It’s no surprise that die hard fans are willing to spend a ton of money for their favourite artists. If the artist is selling a plain white t-shirt with their signature on it that cost about RM1K, then you can bet someone will definitely buy it the minute it goes on sale. Sometimes these fans aren’t even buying directly from their idols.
You’d see a lot of people reselling these items for a higher price. Some of them may be fake as well just cause the seller wants to see who’d be crazy enough to buy to them. Remember the time someone tried to “sell” the stool that was allegedly sat on by F1 world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton? Well now, someone is trying to do the same with something that was allegedly used by Billie Eilish recently. Here’s the scoop:
You know how artists will have a bottle of water with them on stage to keep themselves hydrated? Billie Eilish is definitely no exception to this as she was seen drinking from a blue water bottle during her concert here in Malaysia recently. Fans wish they could be that water bottle or better yet, own that bottle. That may be possible since someone put it up on sale for RM1.2K.
A user named Yachino posted on Carousell that they’re selling the blue drinking bottle that was allegedly used by the singer. According to the original post, the user claimed that they got hold of the bottle from security after the concert had ended. He also claimed that the bottle was in its original condition and even had the “B” marking on it which presumably refers to Billie.
Not long after posting, the item had been taken down but then another user that goes by the name Softwareluxor reposted the drinking bottle and is selling it for a slightly cheaper price at RM1.1K. Netizens reacted to the original listing after it was shared by @junjulaiaugust on Twitter.
Unlike the Lewis Hamilton stool listing and its over exaggerated product description, this one has no indication that the original user was just trolling everyone. The description was kept simple and straight to the point so there is a chance that this could be the real deal.
With that being said however, it could still be just a harmless prank. If the listing is still up, one should buy the item at their own risk. If it turns out to be fake then you don’t have anyone else to blame so be careful.
