As if getting invited to the Academy Awards and possibly taking home an Oscar isn’t already the stuff of most people’s dreams, this year’s gift bag is more over-the-top than ever.
Worth a whopping $232,000 the gifts include an 10-day all-expenses-paid trip to Israel and a Vampire breast lift. Because none of the rich attendees could possibly afford any of this, right? Oh, and they also threw a $6 Chapstick. You know, to balance everything out.
Here are some more of the lavish items inside this year’s Oscars gift bag.
• A lifetime supply of Pu-erh Tea Nourishing Cream and Pu-erh Tea Cleansing Bar ($31,200, or how much you owe in student loans)
• A private walking tour of Japan for up to 15 days ($54,000, which is about the median annual salary in the United States)
• Gleener on the Go ($11.99, your checking account balance)
• 740 Park plastic surgery ($5,530, or twice the combined value of everything you own.
The Academy is far from eager to give the bag it’s co-sign, and it appears to be embarrassed by it’s extravagance. They’re suing Distinctive Assets, the marketing company that’s providing the gifts, for copyright infringement.
Let’s be real- there are a lot of other ways this money could be spent than by gifting it to some of the most wealthy celebrities. SMH.
