Do you believe in serendipitous moments? Well, a stranger stumbled upon an unexpected discovery while enjoying a McDonald’s meal. Hidden amid the crispy chicken nuggets was a piece that bore a striking resemblance to one of the characters from the wildly popular game Among Us. This fortuitous find set off a chain of events that would captivate the world.
Before we dive deeper into this intriguing story, let me share the most astonishing detail—an auction for this special piece of chicken had already surpassed a staggering $40,000! Yes, you read that right! That’s over 900 million Vietnamese dong! So, let’s unravel this tale together.
The Rise of the Chicken Imposter
The journey began when the chicken piece made its debut on eBay on May 28, with an initial bid of a mere $0.99. Little did anyone know that this humble nugget would capture the imagination of bidders worldwide. Over 148 auctions and 33 bidders later, the bidding price skyrocketed to unbelievable heights. The lucky winner will receive the frozen and sealed chicken piece, ensuring its freshness, through secure USPS First Class shipping—before its 14-day expiration.
What contributed to this soaring frenzy? The answer lies in the phenomenal success of the game Among Us. Although released in 2018, the game experienced exponential growth in 2020, following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar’s live streaming of Among Us on Twitch. Among Us pits a crew of players against one (or two) imposters who try to eliminate the crewmates one by one. The players engage in emergency meetings, presenting arguments to identify and eliminate the infiltrators. The game’s unique concept and addictive gameplay elevated it to superstardom.
