‘Among Us’ chicken nugget listed for over £35,000 on eBay
A McDonald’s chicken nugget which looks like an Among Us crewmate is attracting a price on eBay.
The chicken nugget was first listed on eBay on May 28, and has since reached over £35,000 ($50,000), and still has another 24 hours to go.
According to Comicbook.com the oddly shaped chicken nugget was originally listed for a set price of around £700 ($1,000) but was then relisted in an open auction.
Among Us developer InnerSloth is also following the auction, as revealed by a recent Twitter post. The chicken nugget was found as part of a Combo Meal themed after K-pop megasarts BTS that is currently being sold by McDonald’s in the US.
