O J Simpson hypothetico-shlockfest hits eBay

If I Did It: The Final Insult

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Inevitably, copies of O J Simpson's spousal stabbing fantasy If I Did It which slipped out prior to it being recalled and pulped have popped up on eBay.

OJ Simpson on eBay

One seller, whose auction has reached $1,225 writes: "Yes This Is The Real Deal And I Will Not Reveal Where I Got It So Dont Ask." Okay, we won't. The publishers are reportedly chasing eBay to have the auctions pulled down.

An interview tie-in already filmed with the Bronco highway rallyist has also been canned by TV stations. The words "YouTube" and "matter of time" are being carelessly wielded in these parts. ®
