Reviews of $40,000 TV create buzz on Amazon

Posted: Updated:

An 85 inch TV on Amazon is creating buzz on the internet. Not because of its $40,000 price tag, but because of how the internet is responding through ‘reviews' of the product.

Almost 600 reviews are listed for the 85 inch television that touts 4k resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It is unknown how many of the reviewers have actually purchased or used the TV, but the comments are quickly being shared throughout social media. Most are believed to be satirical of the televisions large price tag.

One reviewer claims their family made a ‘large sacrifice to' afford the TV, claiming they sold their daughter to raise funds:

"My wife and I bought this after selling our daughter Amanda into white slavery. We actually got a refurbished. It's missing the remote, but oh well-- for $10K off, I can afford a universal, right? The picture is amazing. I've never seen the world with such clarity.

Amanda, if you're reading this, hang in there, honey! We'll see you in a year."

Another from ‘Jon S' claims:

"It makes those abused animal commercials with the sarah mclachlan music playing so much sadder when the one-eyed pug is 4 feet tall."

Amazon reviews are starting to become more prevalent on social media. Last week reviews of the Haribo's Sugarless Gummy Bears went viral because of the intestinal distress the product causes.
