People camped outside Target, then trampled each other just to get their hands on a Stanley Valentine's cup
ยท Jan 4, 2024 ยท

Are we okay?

I mean as a society. Like, are we good?

Cuz this whole Stanley cup thing is getting a little out of hand. Stanley just released a Valentine's Day edition of their extremely popular insulated cup and people went absolutely nuts over it. The special edition cup, which, like all Stanley cups, keeps your beverage either hot or cold and can apparently survive a fire, cost a whopping $45, and is now going for upwards of $200 on eBay. Not joking.

Although the holiday is over a month away, the double-wall vacuum-insulated tumblers priced at $45 have sold out online and across Target stores nationwide after their initial Dec. 31 drop โ€ฆ the tumblers are already up on resale sites like eBay, listed at prices up to $240.

And when I say people went nuts I mean these peeps camped out at Target as early as 3 a.m. to get in line for the cup's release.

Don't believe me?

I'm sorry, but..

What's going on here, guys?

Like, are we twelve?

I mean, look at this:

This is crazy, yo. Like, legit crazy.

Some Target stores had a 2-cup limit per household (some had a limit of one).

This couple even tried to steal one! ๐Ÿ‘‡

If only people held this type of passion for things that actually matter, such as:

Okay, I'll stop being a grumpy old man, and I'll leave you this slightly uplifting video of a man and his daughter camping out for one of the Stanley cups, because I myself am also a bit of a pushover when it comes to the girls in my life:

Hate to say it, but I kinda love that video.
