Just days after the internet was set ablaze with the selling (and eating) of Maurizio Cattelan’s $120,000 USD Comedian banana, Popeyes has taken to Twitter to announce that it has also released a duct-tape work of art for Art Basel Miami.

Titled The Sandwich, the artwork features Popeyes’ coveted fried chicken sandwich duct-taped to canvas. As a nod towards the original duct-taped banana, the sandwich is priced at $120,003.99 USD — $120,000 plus an extra $3.99 for the sandwich — and on display in partnership with San Paul Gallery Urban Art. While there has yet to be a buyer for The Sandwich, Popeyes has stated that proceeds will go towards its Popeyes Foundation.
