Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Caught In the Act
View the eBay Auction.
JUNE 29, 2005, LOS ANGELES, CA -- For those that have always dreamed of breathing the air of the rich and famous comes the one and only "Celebrity Jar" containing the air of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The Jar was sold for $529.99 on eBay to notorious collector of pop culture merchandise GoldenPalace.com.
The Celebrity Jar is an ordinary wide mouth, quart-sized mason jar that the seller brought to the premiere of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in Westwood, California. As megastars Pitt and Jolie strolled across the red carpet, the jar was opened to capture the air molecules expelled by the stars of the blockbuster movie.
The Jar was then sealed and placed in a safety deposit box to preserve the couple's air. Pictures from the premiere were plastered all over the seller's eBay page. Included with the jar are two Mr. & Mrs. Smith t-shirts and pictures featuring the Jar on location at the premiere.
The Celebrity Jar has been featured on several media outlets including Access Hollywood, Star Magazine, E! Online, MSNBC, ESPN, and CBS. Such extensive media coverage was sure to spark the attention of GoldenPalace.com, the Internet casino that turned the world's biggest auction site into the world's most unlikely advertising vehicle.
"This is another perfect example of pop culture phenomenon," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "There is literally nothing in this jar except air, and it has made headlines all over the country and even overseas. The sheer weirdness and absurdity of this item has made it a marketing success."
Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Recently, items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, Marilyn Monroe's personal address book, and Pope Benedict XVI's previously-owned VW Golf have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

Hey, I'll fart in a jar and sell it to you at a fraction of the cost you paid for this item - say $53? Volume discounts could be applied (e.g. two jars for $100). I'm not famous (yet), but no two farts are alike, so you would have a truly unique item that only I could have produced...

Thank you for your support C'est moi!
However my jars would be produced strictly on a "made-to-order" basis. My "essence" would not be bottled until just prior to shipment. The bottles would be shatterproof, tamper-proof, airtight, vacuum-sealed and UltraViolet light-resistant. For $53, my customers have the right to expect fresh goods! I would be a failure as a businessman if word got around that I was selling stale farts at (pardon the pun) over-inflated prices!

Donald, give it up buddy...as the song goes, people want to "save time in a bottle". For what earthly reason would one want to save farts in a bottle? To put in a time capsule to see how farts smelled 500 years ago? Please!

How should I know why someone would buy a trapped fart? If Brad Pitt farted in a bottle, I bet someone would pay hundreds of dollars for it. So I'm just saying I will fart in a jar for considerably less. One man's crap (well, near enough) is another man's treasure. I might not be much to look at, but maybe my farts are WAY better than Brad's...
