A McDonald’s chicken nugget shaped like a crewmate from Among Us has been auctioned for almost $100,000.

According to the seller, the “used” nugget came from a BTS Combo meal.

Among Us, which encourages players to collaborate or deceive each other in an online murder mystery, was released for mobile devices in June 2018 and for PC in November of the same year.
It had roughly half a billion monthly active users in November 2020, making it “by far the most popular game ever in terms of monthly players”, according to research firm Nielsen.
Microsoft confirmed at the time that Among Us would be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox Game Pass for console in 2021. Among Us is also scheduled to hit PlayStation consoles this year.
The title was recently given away as part of the Epic Games Store’s weekly free game promotion.
