Fan Tries to Sell Rainwater That Fell on Taylor Swift During Eras Tour at $250 | “What an Entrepreneur!”
A business idea can strike even during the most mentally-engrossing live concert. Taylor Swift is no amateur in carrying a whole music tour on her shoulders and she has millions of fans worldwide. Swifties go crazy for her, screaming, dancing and singing along with the pop star's songs. However, her recent tour made headlines for a hilarious reason.
A fan of the Bad Blood singer turned entrepreneur at her recent Foxborough, Massachusetts concert. Apparently, the fan collected the rainwater that fell on Swift on the stage during her Eras tour and has put the same for sale for a whooping USD 250, per Page Six. LOL. Understandably, Swift has diehard and dedicated fans who would trade anything to catch a glimpse of her but this one fan took their devotion to the next level and tried to sell the most bizarre merchandise in the name of the pop singer. Is it worth it? The internet has divided opinions.
For sure, she braved the storm to deliver hit after hit but taking back the rainwater that touched her in containers for 250 smackeroonies is a bit too much. Kudos to the fan whose business idea is to make the most of the opportunity, collect the "collectible" rainwater from the stadium and demand money for it. The hawk-eyed fans quickly spotted the "liquid souvenir" on a popular Instagram account, Only in Boston and it seemed like a screenshot that was from a Facebook marketplace listing under the title 'Taylor Swift Eras Tour Merch Rain.' Come on! It sounds as bizarre as bizarre can get.
Popstar fans couldn't believe their eyes and rushed to leave shocking yet insanely hilarious comments on this merch. An Instagram user, @kikipieburn wrote, "Jealous I didn't come up with this scam first." Another @jjcoombes26 quipped, "I could squeeze more out of my clothes." Hahaha! We bet. The screenshot depicted three containers from local weed dispensary Happy Valley, filled with a clear liquid that was apparently caught during the downpour at the second Gillette Stadium show. @brannonconnolly joked, "Look like a new Happy Valley soluble strain."
However, when in-depth research was done on the Facebook marketplace, it was found that the listing was no longer there. It's unclear when it was removed from the marketplace and by whom. The post garnered much-needed attention and left the internet in splits over the product's absurdity. @saturdayvibes_ commented, "What an entrepreneur." A second user, @joeyb77 wrote, "White girl tears." Some Instagram users even suggested that the rainwater has been stored in weed jars and laughed at it. @hayjay90 exclaimed, "Stored in weed jars. Amazing."
In another incident, the pop star's fan tried to sell a pair of her used disposable contacts for a shocking $10,000 on Depop because they had 'seen' her Eras Tour, per Daily Mail. Unbelievable, right? But it happened. We don't know whether the seller's gambit was successful or not but hats off to their weird business idea. Not many would have the courage to even think it up!
