Berghain’s Ben Klock played a 12-hour set to close out the Berlin club’s New Year’s marathon celebration on January 4th. Now, it’s your chance to own a piece of that night: a banana he reportedly handed over to a fan when his set was over, who has since put it up for auction on eBay.
The role of the banana during marathon sets has been well documented in the past, with many artists choosing it as a snack of choice thanks to its mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates.
The seller notes: “He handed it to me as a sop of his conscience after remaining ravers and me begged him to play another last record – I kissed his hand, he kissed mine and the banana was the physical bond of ours, of this moment. He explained he had some before and they were delicious; I believe him, his banana still looks yummy! I am leaving town soon and can’t take care of this precious diamond so decided to sell it here. Hope it finds a good home. Can be used/appreciated in several ways.
Good luck with the auction!”
As of the minute this article was published, the auction has drawn 29 bids reaching 49.50 Euros, the equivalent of $54.08. Want it? Here is your chance – the seller is shipping internationally!
