The Daily Grind Video

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.
