Paul McCartney's Flu Germs For Sale On eBay

from the ugh dept

As we were just talking about silly publicity stunts on eBay, here's the latest. You can now bid on Paul McCartney's "flu germs". He apparently had to cancel a recent concert due to the flu. The auction isn't from McCartney, himself, but a fan, who claims he caught the flu from McCartney after the two spent some time together. The winner will receive a bag that the seller will "cough" into. This seems somewhat moronic, and I'm guessing eBay agrees. I just checked and can't find the auction, so I'm guessing it's been taken down.
