As promised by the web service, a glitter bomb sent to an enemy can be a real nuisance.
But the glitter that just wouldn’t go away turned out to be on the hands of the man who created shipyourenemiesglitter.com, who after a few days of viral attention and web-site crashing orders begged off.
“Hi guys I’m the founder of this website,” wrote Mathew Carpenter on Product Hunt last week. “Please stop buying this horrible glitter product — I’m sick of dealing with it. Sincerely, Mat.”
Some quick cash might be the remedy to remove the glitter off Carpenter’s hands.
His site went up for sale on flippa.com, receiving more than 300 bids and quickly exceeded the $60,000 reserve bid.
