Fan Selling Contacts That Have ‘Seen Taylor Swift Eras Tour’ For $10,000

We all know by now that getting tickets to see Taylor Swift live in concert requires a small fortune (as well as a whole lot of luck). However, one fan who managed to see a stop on the Taylor Swift Eras Tour hoped to recoup some of the funds they dished out by selling the contacts they wore to see the show for $10,000 on Depop.

The listing, posted by sushilvr, claimed that while the contact lenses were used, they were still in “excellent condition.” More than that, they had the divine privilege of seeing Taylor Swift live in the flesh. That has to be worth 10 grand, right?! After all, if you were to put them in your own eyes, you might even be able to pretend you were there!

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it wasn’t long before the listing went viral, with people on social media remarking on how absolutely bonkers it is. While one person joked that they “respect the hustle” and another said they “love a businesswoman,” others admitted the whole thing was “weird,” “disgusting,” and “embarrassing.” As one user said frankly: “Swifties are so unhinged. I love us so much.”

What’s even stranger is that a lot of Taylor Swift fans claimed they’d actually be interested in buying the contacts if they had the money and weren’t already attending the Eras Tour. “This is how much of a dedicated fan I am! If you told me to roll around in shards of glass I would!” one claimed. Another added (hopefully jokingly), “I’d buy, I have no personality outside of being a Taylor fan.”

Thankfully, Depop deleted the listing so that no one can actually buy this. As for the person behind the listing, they claimed it was all one big joke. Sadly, with Swifties, you can never really be sure!
