A jar containing air breathed by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sold for a total of $523 on eBay. And no, unfortunately we're not pulling your leg here! According to the Daily Mail's website, Joe Wilson, a celebrity spotter, who's apparently trying to get into the celebrity memorabilia business, put Brangelina's "air" up for auction, and someone, who chose to remain anonymous (gee, we wonder why), actually bought it.

Clearly the nameless buyer was OK spending over $500 on a jar that may or may not contain Brad and Angelina's breath, as the seller's eBay announcement doesn't exactly guarantee the jar's contents came straight from their mouths.
"Be the first to win this jar of Celebrity air, which may contain air molecules that came in direct contact with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt," it says.
And our guess is that this "Celebrity air" didn't come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad and Angie themselves. (Although judging by the popularity of the celebrity memorabilia industry, it wouldn't be a bad way for the power couple to raise some money for their various causes.)
So, yeah. You can file that one under crazy things people will do for their celebrity obsessions. Speaking of which, "celebrity air" isn't the only thing obsessed fans are wasting their money on these days. An Elvis fanatic, bought a jar of the King's hair for a mere $115,000; Marilyn Monroe chest X-rays, taken in 1954 at a Florida hospital, recently sold for $45,000; a dirty sock belonging to Bryan Adams that was oddly enough, left behind in a cab, went for $950; and an either crazy or really hungry fan blew $1,050 on Justin Timberlake's leftover breakfast. Meanwhile, someone even attempted to hawk a used cough drop that Arnold Schwarzenegger allegedly spit out, on eBay. (Um, gross!) Luckily, the posting was removed before it sold or infected anyone.

So if you've got money to spare and want to buy a lock of your favorite celeb's hair or perhaps, Miley Cyrus' old retainer, head to eBay and start bidding.
