eBay user attempts to sell 2012 Stereosonic condoms for $999

Two unused condoms from Stereosonic’s 2012 electronic dance festival are selling on eBay for a micro $999 each.

The eBay user cleverly tugs at the heartstrings of those who previously attended, lamenting on the “long gone days of Australia’s festival scene” and encouraging others to “…share the love and grab the opportunity to suprise a friend or frame these as a moment of the times!

And what a time it was, as this tweet from a festival goer in 2015 exhibits:
