WTF did you say the price was?
A Twitter user found a bucket on Amazon. A single red plastic bucket that your mom would yell at you if you even paid Rs 50 for it.
But, instead of mindlessly scrolling away without giving it a second thought, what caught his eye left him mindfucked. The bucket costs a whopping INR 25,999!
Don’t believe me? Read the Tweet here:

Twitterati was equally bamboozled by the bizarre pricing:
The baffling part 🤯 only 1 left in stock! pic.twitter.com/FakLbdBEwk— Shubhi Srivastava (@shubhi1011) May 23, 2022
On Amazon, you have to purchase a product to review it. So did that 1-star review guy actually buy this bucket only to be able to write a sarcastic review on it? 🙃— Muskaan Sancheti (@heyitsmush) May 23, 2022
at that cost this bucket better be turning water into wine— Tina Gurnaney (@TinaGurnaney) May 23, 2022

Don’t buy the bucket.— Pallav Barah (@unscrabble) May 24, 2022
Instead make an NFT of the screenshot and then sell it for $3mil.
Buy it. It’s a status thing. You’ll be the only person who has a bucket that costs 25k. It’s a piece of rare art. It’s Web 0 redefined.— Adithya Venkatesan (@adadithya) May 23, 2022
Then sell it for $3 million
Letting my imagination run wild, this a good way to send illegal stuff. What if it's a coded item where the product image and are of the bucket but you also get other things in the bucket🤷🏻♀️— Meghana (@_aspiringcat) May 24, 2022
Ok if anyone’s interested in knowing why – sellers raise the price to ridiculous amount when the products are gonna go out of stock because you tend to loose your amazon visibility if you have no stock.— siddhesh assawa (@siddhesh_asawa) May 23, 2022
Is this some bullshit modern art piece? Perhaps a commentary on the juxtaposition of a mundane, tangible, material entity against the backdrop of the ludicrous era of economic instability our world is entering?
