I figured out why I couldn't find the "authentic" Britney Spears hair eBay auction listing. eBay had taken it down.
It's now a web site at www.buybritneyshair.com. At the top is $1,000,000 -- "minimum offer."
"This is it, the opportunity of a lifetime. You can be the proud owner
of Britney Spears' hair, extensions, the Omega clipper used to cut it
all off and even the can of Red Bull she was drinking at the time. You
also get her blue Bic Lighter and this valuable domain and website to
use for publicity purposes. This is the Ultimate Britney Spears
Experience! It is a piece of history that can not be duplicated!"
The web site owner, reportedly the owners of Esther's Haircutting Studio in Tarzana, Ca., write:
"Please Note: WE HAD THE HAIR LISTED ON EBAY, ITEM# 330089956532 AND IT
WAS CANCELLED FOR AN AS YET UKNOWN REASON. WE HAVE NOW SET UP THIS
WEBSITE AS THE ONLY OFFICIAL LISTING FOR THE HAIR."
There are pictures of the hair, as well as Britney's blue lighter.
So "If you are SERIOUS about purchasing please do the following: Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, company name (if applicable), email, phone number, and address."
Who will the new owner be? Golden Palace Casino, perhaps?
