Gene Simmons' Used Chewing Gum Sells for $250,000
How much would you pay for a piece of memorabilia once used by one of your musical idols? What if that piece of memorabilia was a used stick of gum? Turns out that some people would be willing to pay quite a bit. A stick of gum once chewed by Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has recently been sold on eBay for a whopping $247,710.28 The gum was chewed by Simmons when he appeared on the UK Sports programme Soccer AM and was sold by the channel to raise money for Street League, a charity which is dedicated to tackling youth unemployment in the UK. The winner of the auction also received the gum’s original packaging and a copy of Simmons' script for the show. You can watch a video of Simmons chewing the gum here. While the winner of the auction certainly shelled out for their prize, at least they weren’t fleeced on shipping costs. Postage and packaging for the gum was free. What is the strangest piece of rock memorabilia that you have ever seen? Do you own any weird and wonderful rock star paraphernalia? Let us know in the comments.
