The internet is full of products that the majority of people would have zero use for – many of which can be found on eBay.
In his latest video, YouTuber Matthias tested the strange depths of eBay weirdness by having a friend purchase ten of the weirdest things he could find on the marketplace site, and then unpackaging them on camera.
The clip, entitled 10 Wacky Ebay Products, begins with 28-year-old Matthias, whose real name is Matthew Frederick, having a small box plopped down in front of him. On the side of the box is a label that reads ‘bat.’

Stomping along: The second product is a rubber glove made to resemble a deer hoof
‘Hold up. Is this going to attack me when I open this?’ he asks. ‘I wasn’t born yesterday.’
While opening the box doesn’t see a winged creature fly into his face, it is rather found inside dead, encased in glass. Matthias looks it over with an expression of disgust, saying it gives him ‘the willies.’
After that experience, he informs his friend Gunner: ‘If you give me another animal part I will hurt you. Physically.’
His friend is saved for the moment when the next item turns out to be only shaped like an animal part: a single rubber glove made to look like a deer hoof.
Third item up is one the pair didn’t bother to purchase because it costs $200, but describes it to their viewers saying they will buy if fans insist. The item, a yellow Luren bicycle unicycle unitrike bike, is utterly baffling.

Getting prepped: Gunner gives Matthias a gas mask, which helps him when he tests out a pungent ‘fart spray’
A USB pickle light is the next product up, consisting of a green wire attached to a pickle-shaped end which, according to the packaging, is ‘perfect for night blogging.’
Both men in the videos are not only confused by the idea of a pickle-shaped light, but also why it would be marketed towards bloggers.
‘I don’t think they realized that a computer has light in the screen… so you don’t really need to light the screen’ says Gunner.
Next is a ghillie suit, a camouflage outfit made to resemble foliage, which Gunner puts on before trying to ‘hide’ in the room.
A gas mask with a built-in respirator is next up, preparing Matthias perfectly for the following purchase: a can emblazoned with the words ‘fart spray.’

Big fail: A foam dart shooter proves to be totally useless as Matthias tries to aim
Take a breath: The final baffling product is a ‘breath test’ that the pair infer must be to test if the user has bad breath
They test the spray on a bit of fabric and the smell is so terribly pungent that it sends Gunner running out of the room. After taking a brief sniff, Matthias tightens up his gas mask – which ‘really works’ – and describes the stench as smelling like sulfur.
Item number eight is straight out of children’s nightmares: a ventriloquist dummy made to resemble Bozo the clown.
‘This is so creepy,’ says Matthias, while Gunner adds: ‘I’m getting a really bad vibe right now.’
The last two weird items include a foam dart shooter – that seems to be terrible at aiming – and something called a ‘breath checker.’
The latter possibly promises to test whether the user has bad breath. Both men rank a ‘one’ on the test, but aren’t able to figure out what that means since all the instructions are in Mandarin.
