In yet another unconventional turn of events which have led to someone getting an exorbitant sum of money. Rylee found a single piece of an unusual corn chip while enjoying a packet of Doritos to which she decided to make a video of it and post it on TikTok.
In the video, she was seen asking her followers whether she should eat the chip or was it valuable. The video ended up going viral with more than 2.9 million views. Netizens suggested she sell the chip online and that’s exactly what she did. She took images of the chip and posted it on eBay for A$0.99, describing it as ‘Puffy Dorito one of a kind’.
While many did not think anything of it, a few of them thought of it to be a priceless item. Withing half an hour, the puffy Dorito started receiving bids which went up to A$10 and in an hour’s time, it went to A$10,000.
