Montauk Monster fails to attract monster price on eBay

with 3 comments

Some people have no shame! The people who spiced up our summer with the Montauk Monster are now apparently trying to cash in by selling their websites on eBay. As we revealed last week, the whole beastie story was probably just a silly marketing trick to promote interest in next year’s B-movie comedy Spinterheads, produced by Darren Goldberg.

Now it seems hoaxers have put three uninspiring and unofficial Splinterheads websites up for sale. So far though, they haven’t had much luck with bids ‘shooting up’ from 99 cents yesterday to $1.04 today. As we feel a bit bad for them, we might dig into the Gotham News purse and get it up to $2. Or maybe not.

Part of the problem, monster fans say, is that the Splinterheads movie appears to have nothing to do with monsters – it’s about carnies instead.

Nicky Papers, who started up her own website to investigate the mystery, was unimpressed with the development. As she correctly says, “What good is seeing a movie about a bunch of carnies if the Montauk Monster isn’t involved?”

  1. you got it all wrong. what is being “sold” on ebay is the website for the movie Splinterheads. The producders of this movie had absolutely nothing to do with the finidng of the montauk monster (whatever it turns out to be); they were simply trying to jump on the bandwagon and drum up publicity for their movie.

    the actual monster itself is not being sold on ebay, even a cursory review of the ebay page would let you know this.

  2. It was a joke. Never mind. You should probably find a site more suited to you. Try this one:
