A Cheetos corn snack resembling Harambe the Gorilla just sold on eBay for $99,900.
The seller, “valuestampsinc,” listed the item as “Gorilla Hot Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos – Harambe Gorilla,” juxtaposing it with a side photo of the gorilla.
In a phone call, eBay confirmed to CNBC the item was valid and available for purchase, but has not yet returned a request for comment on the specific listing.
Seeing resemblances in food is not a new phenomenon. In 2014, the BBC explained why people see faces in everything from food to cars, and how it may have developed because of our dependence on socialization.
Harambe the Gorilla was a 400-pound silverback fatally shot by a zookeeper after a human child entered his enclosure. His shooting went viral on the internet, creating several memes and attracting worldwide attention. Harambe was housed in the Cincinnati Zoo.
