If there are two things that have gone massively viral in 2021, it’s Among Us and the McDonald’s BTS meal. Well, in the strangest crossover you’re likely to see for the rest of the year, an Among Us-shaped chicken nugget from the combo has sold for nearly $100,000. Yes, you read that right.
In an unlikely turn of events, somebody has visited McDonald’s to pick up the new BTS meal and found an imposter in their box of McNuggets.
An Among Us-shaped chicken bite has been found and listed to eBay. In a matter of days, bids surpassed an astonishing $50,000 and if you thought that was as far as people were going to go, you’d be very wrong.
Among Us nugget from McDonald’s BTS meal goes viral
The listing ended on June 4, with the buyer scooping it for $99,997.
For the sale, this (presumably cold) nugget is not available for returns. The condition is “Used” and it will be shipped with USPS First Class.
Having read through the product description, there are a few other things to note. “This food product has an average expiration of about 14 days and will be delivered prior to expiration.
“Item will be Frozen and then Air sealed to ensure freshness with secure shipping method.”
The official Among Us account responded to the listing back on June 2, and the price spiked massively since that post. The auction has, though, since concluded.

In a cheeky response, Xbox posted: “For that price it must come with Szechuan Sauce.”

The listing, which had over 800 different potential buyers watching it, was shipped from Utah, in the United States.
To see something like this sell for over $100,000 is crazy, but at least eating too much McDonald’s during lockdown paid off for at least one of us. You could buy a house for that amount.
