A photo of a bucket being sold on Amazon has gone viral on the internet. The reason why most internet users are shocked is because of the exorbitant price tag of the product.
The item titled “Plastic Bicket for Home and Bathroom Set of 1” is being sold on Amazon e-commerce website for a whopping Rs. 25,999. What makes this even weirder is the fact that this is after a 28 percent discount with an original price of 35,900.
The photo was posted to Twitter by @vivekraju93 who wrote, “Just found this on Amazon and I don’t know what to do.”

Another user @_aspiringcat gave an even better insight by writing: “Let my imagination run wild, this is a good way to send illegal stuff. What if it’s an encrypted item where the product image and are from the bucket, but you also get other things in the bucket”
Letting my imagination run wild, this is a good way to send illegal stuff. What if it’s a coded item where the product image and are from the bucket, but you also get other things in the bucket🤷🏻♀️
