The Australian website that invites you to torment your enemy by sending him or her a box of glitter has sold for $85,000 just days after launching.
Mathew Carpenter, the creator of ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com launched the website on Jan. 13, offering the evil boxes for about $10.
Carpenter said that he made about $20,000 in just a week. But then, within days of launching, he put the whole website up for sale, with this ad on the website ProductHunt.com:
“Hi guys, I'm the founder of this website. Please stop buying this horrible glitter product — I'm sick of dealing with it. Sincerely, Mat.”
Carpenter was apparently burned out after a full week of success.
“You know, after a whole seven days in the glitter distribution business I just thought it wasn't for me.” (TheStar.com)
