Frightened Rabbit Frontman’s Beard Up For Sale On eBay
Written by Marc Zanotti on 22nd February, 2013
In what will probably be the strangest story of the day, Frightened Rabbit’s frontman Scott Hutchison’s beard is currently up for bids on eBay. What adds an M. Night Shyamalan-style twist to the tale is that Hutchison seemingly has no prior knowledge of the online follicular auction.
As Hutchison’s commented on his Instagram account, next to a picture of the removed, bagged and tagged beard, he is unsure what to make of the furry eBay item:
“Someone is selling my beard on eBay. Still figuring out how I feel about this. 99p seems cheap. Took me ages to grow.”
Giving his self-confessed underwhelming hirsuteness, Hutchinson also commented that it may be worth him putting in a bid to try and buy back his hard-earned facial hair:
“well seeing as my beard growing ability is somewhat juvenile for a 28 year old man, I’d probably stick it to my face for a day or so…..might stick a bid in”
How Hutchison’s beard found its way onto eBay is still up for speculation. Was it collected backstage after a gig, as the auction claims? Or swept up at a barber’s shop? Did it simply fall off Hutchison’s face and onto the auction block? It is a mystery among mysteries.
And just in case you’re thinking of sporting some Hutchison hair on your face, the current bid stands at £5.51 (AU$8.18).
