They say imitation is the best form of flattery. Following the news that a banana ducted taped to a wall sold for $120,000 over the past weekend, Popeyes decided to elevate a menu offering to the level of art. The fast-food chain installed one of their wildly popular chicken sandwiches in the same fashion at Miami’s San Paul Gallery on Monday. Calling the exhibit, “The Sandwich,” a collector can pick it up for just $120,003.99. According to Thrillist, a buyer has already made an inquiry. If the person goes through with the purchase, proceeds will be sent to the non-profit Popeyes Foundation, which provides food to communities in need.
