Arcade Fire release their newest album on $109 fidget spinner (update)

Surely this must be peak fidget spinner territory

Arcade Fire Fidget Spinner

Back when Google added a fidget spinner to its search engine, I said the virtual doppelganger likely signified that we had reached the peak of the fad. Boy, was I wrong because now we’re clearly in peak fidget spinner territory.

Canadian institution Arcade Fire has released a special edition of their latest album, Everything Now, and, as you probably guess, it comes on a fidget spinner. The collectible was on sale for $109 USD. I say “was” because it has since sold out. People can’t seem to get enough fidget spinners, least of all Arcade Fire fans apparently.

Thankfully, Everything Now is still available on CD, vinyl and cassette, starting at a much more reasonable $13.98 USD. It’s also available to stream via Spotify.

Update 01/08/17: It appears Arcade Fire has played a cruel joke on gullible journalists like yours truly. The fidget spinner, which was never in stock to begin with, was all part of the band’s elaborate marketing campaign for Everything Now. Well played, guys. Well played.

Thanks for the tip, Sam.
