A Cheeto that bears a resemblance to slain gorilla Harambe has sold for nearly $100,000 USD on eBay. The seller, Chris from Burbank, California, started the original bidding at $11.99 USD on January 28. Clearly underestimating the power of Harambe, the final winning bid for the Cheeto went for $99,900 USD. The listing showed a picture of the Cheeto side-by-side with a gorilla climbing a tree. Harambe has become an icon for internet jokes since his death last May. He was shot dead by handlers at the Cincinnati Zoo after dragging a small boy who had gotten into his enclosure.

And if you haven’t noticed yet, the new Apple iOS 10.2 update features an emoji resembling the famed gorilla.
