Person Pokes Fun at Ridiculous Figment Popcorn Bucket Ebay Pricing By Offering a “Bad Sketch” Of One

Today has been insane. People are waiting in a line that ranges from 4-6.5 hours to get a Figment Popcorn bucket at the opening of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.

The popcorn bucket has caused quite the stir and it’s the one thing people actually want to line up for at Disney right now (looking at you Galactic Starcruiser.) While the hot item does have a limit of two per guest, people are walking out with bunches and they are going to eBay and the third-party market, with prices heading over $200!

But one person has decided to take a different approach to the situation by listing a “Bad Artwork Sketch” of a Figment Popcorn bucket for charity. And I love it!

Amongst the greed I found this listing:

The bidding has hit over $15 at the time of this article.

Looking at those 2022 Figment Popcorn Buckets at Festival of the Arts and think that it is ridiculous to pay $150 for some mass-produced item? For a fraction of the price, you can get this really bad 5-minute sketch of one.

Limited edition of ONE — can be signed upon request or you can sign your own name to it — it’s really bad artwork that anyone could have created with 5 minutes, a hotel room pen, and a piece of paper.

Even better, I’ll include ONE BAG OF MICROWAVE POPCORN, because what is sadder than a popcorn bucket without popcorn?

A portion of the sale will benefit Habitat for Humanity.

You even get a bag of microwave popcorn and you can get it signed or sign your own name.

The seller indicates that part of the sale will go to Habitat for Humanity.

Personally I think it would be fantastic if this piece of art went for more than the scalped popcorn buckets. The ingenuity alone is worth it and you don’t have to wait in line for 5-6.5 hours!

Just so you know, here is what people are asking for the buckets on Ebay!

Since I originally posted this article another “art piece” have been added to eBay as well:

Better Artwork Sketch of Figment Popcorn Bucket”

I fully expect more to appear in the future.
