I wish I had this idea, seems like a quick way to make some money. But seriously, how did this happen? It's over $30,000 now, which is way more than the actual Wii U's are selling for on eBay. Are there really that many people out there with a lot of money and few brain cells?

Any theories on how this happened? I can't figure out what's going on here and I'm friggin' curious!

Well you see, it's professionally crafted, cut with only the sharpest scissors, and doodled on with only the finest pointed sharpie. It is truly an exquisite piece, and can be yours for such a low price. :3

It's a joke on how Patcher said Nintendo fans would by Cardboard with Nintendo's name on it.

Anyone who would spend so much on this doesn't deserve all that money!

The fact that this exists baffles me though! I clearly overestimate people when trying to figure out how to get them to give me their money...

So, hi. I am the user who put it up. I'm going from forum saying how this happened. I put it up as a joke at first, but then I noticed it was going up fast from its starting bid, 10 dollars. Two days later, It was at 2,000. I had no idea how, so I just watched. This morning it was at 25,000. Now it's at 90,500. I'm going to put up a video about it on my YouTube Channel, CheerioHD.

I wonder what would the person who wins that would do with it, I can only imagine.

(Christmas Day)
Boy: It's Christmas day and i'm down too my last present, I hope it's a Wii U.
Mom: Maybe it is, I told Santa about it and I even paid more money to get you one.
Boy: (opens present).....Mom, what is this, it's just a cardboard cutout of the Wii U gamepad
Mom: Yeah I know
Boy: How much did you say you paid for this?
Mom: Your college savings.
Boy: Why would do this?
Mom: Because I told you that I would get a Wii U for x-mas, and guess what I did, I got you one.
Boy: (╥﹏╥)

“I don’t think Nintendo fans are so stupid they would buy a piece of cardboard. A box on the other hand, that says Nintendo on it, they probably would. Remember when you were a kid and you get gifts, and when you’re really little you like the box better than the gift? That’s how I think of Nintendo fanboys.”
-Micheal Patcher.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I introduce to you the joke.
