In these fast-moving and troubled times, heaven forbid you forget the cultural hipster meltdown that was the Fyre Festival.
Just six weeks ago, social media spent a warm spring Friday afternoon delighting over the news that a luxury music festival in the Caribbean had imploded, leaving the bon vivants who could spend four figures on a luxury music festival in the Caribbean stranded. Festival goers wept, lawsuits were threatened, the entire nation of the Bahamas issued an apology for their involvement.
It was fun. Now it's over.
But it doesn't have to be.
In an effort, it seems, to recoup their monumental financial losses, ticket buyers are selling off their Fyre Festival merchandise. While hot items like a hoodie and lanyard pass have already sold (you snooze, you lose), the "Fyre Festival branded External battery phone chargers that we're going to be given to guests" is still available for $27.
One bright young user, selling a branded baseball cap, really nails the hipster ironic audience in his or her pitch. "I am selling one of the only official hats to be produced in collaboration with world famous nightlife brand 1 OAK as a pre event promotional giveaway," this person writes. "Experience a piece of the FYRE Festival magic: cheese sandwiches, Hunger Games, no security, no escape."
50 dollars! That's only £39.20.
Fyre Festival merch: It's like the pet rock or Tamagotchi of that one Friday afternoon in April 2017. Remember that?
