Fast food giant McDonald's has been in the news recently for multiple reasons. The burger joint has collaborated with Korean sensation BTS to create an interesting new BTS Meal. The meal is currently being served across the world in a unique, purple-coloured packaging created exclusively for the brand.

The item was sold by a user named 'polizna' who resides in Utah in the United States. The chicken nugget's bidding went on for two whole days on eBay, where it was finally sold for USD 99,997 or Rs. 73 lakhs.
There were two reasons why the chicken nugget was so much in demand. Firstly, it was a part of McDonald's BTS meal which fans have been going gaga about. Secondly, the shape of the chicken nugget was quite unique and closely resembled a character from the popular game 'Among Us'. These two factors drove up the price to nearly 100,000 US dollars - an amount quite surprising for a single chicken nugget.
