All it takes for an item to sell out online is one tiny comparison to Hitler to go viral and boom — JCPenney’s now infamous tea kettle is selling for big bucks on eBay. At least one of the $40 kettles has already sold for $199, but rest assured, tea fans, there are plenty more out there.
The Internet has been hopping, buzzing and otherwise jibber-jabbering in the last few days over a tea kettle that showed up on a JCPenney billboard in Culver City, Calif. But whether or not the thing actually looks like Adolf Hitler (see the wave of hair in the handle, the moustache — there you go) it’s already sold out online. Which means if you want it, you’ll have to go into a JCPenney in person to get it.
