Forgot to get someone a present for Christmas? Created by Romanian artist, Veniamin, it’s not only available on eBay, it even comes with free FedEx shipping!

    Item condition “New without tags”.

    I don’t see the attraction. Boring and way overpriced is an understatement.

    My “professional” musical analysis:

    i, VI, VII, i

    Lather, rinse, repeat in E-minor.

    Melody was an ostinato (a “stubborn”)

  3. t0llyb0ng says:

    Oh, it was A-minor.

    Nobody cares.

    My dad paid $40,000 for my college “education” & this is the result.

  4. How will someone pay a million for a piece of plastic?


  5. orchidcup says:

    The shipping is free!

    I wonder how long the artist will be allowed to use a trademarked name for his product.

    • Animby says:

      Orchid – those were the two things that popped into my mind first:

      For a million dollar price tag, I’d expect not only free delivery but at least a hand job

      And does Hasbro (or whoever owns the trademark – I’m frankly too lazy to look it up) not have any IP attorneys?

      Well, actually, the first thing that occurred to me was that the $1,000,000 price tag must be an error. A few thou. maybe. Again, I’m not interested enough to look it up. Maybe he does have the rights to use the Slinky name/image and the price includes those rights for a performer?

    About $999,999 too much.

  7. Glenn E. says:

    A little too suggestive body movements, for exposure to the underage crowd . If it’s just college age students in the audience, then they already know all these moves. But then how would this really be entertaining to them? About as much as 20 clowns climbing out of a tiny car. This is more likely one of those experiences that you hope you’ll soon forget, rather than take to your final rest.

    Question, why did the floor art change so much? Was this performance clipped together from several college games.

    • chase B says:

      suggestive body movements?

      It’s a slinky!

      • Glenn E. says:

        No, it’s a slinky shaped man or animal. Two arms, two legs, and torso. Pretty obvious when you see the operator inside, at the end of the act. Just because a head piece is missing, doesn’t negate the symbolism of a biped or quadruped form. A regular stinky is just a single tube of springy metal. Not four or five, connected together, and covered with cloth. This thing looks alive, and is gettin it on.

  8. AdmFubar says:

    this isnt new mummenschanz did this stuff years ago.

    • Animby says:

      …and better!

    • Glenn E. says:

      Yeah, that’s the name of that stage act. Mummenschanz. They were fairly popular before “Stomp” edged them out. And their slinky suits were a single color. Not a rainbow of colors. And they had two of them interacting. Not just one idiot ungulating about.

      Everything is new, to the short memory of a dim public, who forgets everything they saw 10 years ago.

  9. cool stuff but maybe a little bit overpriced.
