It’s extremely easy to find some strange stuff while surfing the web, especially when it comes to some of the most popular Internet Boyfriends. From merchandise you can buy featuring the cutest of celebrities, to chat rooms and fan communities you can join, many stars have seriously dedicated fan bases. And the one behind actor Timothée Chalamet just outdid themselves.
A particularly creepy item has surfaced online, as AV Club reports, and even if you were interested in owning it, it would’ve cost you a pretty penny. An eBay user put up a very real-looking Chalamet ventriloquist doll, wearing the Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh outfit the actor wore to the 2019 Golden Globes. Remember, the bedazzled harness-looking thing?
While the listing has since ended, the starting bid was a whopping $122,795.00. So, so strange. But although the item is a bit alarming, some of the proceeds were set to go to a good cause. Per the eBay page, 20% of the sale was to be donated to The Trevor Project, which fights to end suicide in the LGBTQ+ community, with a focus on young people.
The listing claims there were no bids on the doll, however social media has been living for the item.

We’re sure if the listing was at least a little bit more reasonably priced, the doll would’ve been snatched up immediately. That said, if you missed your chance the first time around and have a $125,000 burning a hole in your pocket, it appears to be up for sale again by a different lister.
