Quick! Let’s play a little game of “Who is Mac DeMarco’s Biggest Fan?” All you have to do is log on to eBay, create a PayPal account, and fork over ten thousand big ones. Yep, Mac DeMarco is selling a roughed up pair of red Vans low-tops on eBay, and the bidding war — as of 10:07am — has already hit $10,101. Oh, and there are six days left in the auction. Do we hear $15,000? $20,000? Your firstborn?
Anyway, once the autographed shoes have sold, DeMarco will donate the proceeds to the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, which is pretty righteous. Here’s what DeMarco had to say about the auction:
I’m selling an old pair of my shoes. I’ve John Hancocked the left shoe. Will anyone buy an old stinky pair of shoes? I don’t know. lets wait and see.
I’ll probably throw some other crap in the box before shipping it, I dunno what.
If you’re one of those kids who tried to take them off my feet while I was crowd surfing at some point this year, nice try jackass. But hey, here’s another opportunity for you to have them.
All of the profit will go to Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls.
Wait, someone tried to de-shoe DeMarco mid-crowd surf? Jerk.
