McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets usually come in four shapes, the bell, ball, bone and boot. But now there’s an accidental fifth – the imposter?

This chicken nugget, that appears to resemble a character from the hugely popular video game Among Us , was found in a McDonald’s BTS meal in the US. The owner decided to make a quick buck by posting it onto eBay for 99 cents.

However, in classic internet fashion, the random post blew up. Now if you want to bid on this nugget, you’ll have to cough up almost US$100,000 (HK$776,000).

On Ebay, the Among Us chicken nugget is getting a lot of attention.

The Among Us Twitter account shared the situation and were thoroughly confused about the situation, but it’s clear from tweets throughout the thread they were enjoying the attention.

In response to a future McDonald’s and Among Us collaboration, they only pointed at the fast food chain for comment.

Bidding for the nugget ends at 3.06pm (HKT) today, but because eBay states that bids are legally binding contracts, it seems like someone is actually going to have to pay for what will become the most expensive chicken nugget.

The whole thing is pretty McSus. We wonder what BTS think about it?
