    The Internet is a weird place. And today, it got a little bit weirder.

    Everyone loves Joel Embiid. This guy on Craigslist maybe loves him a little too much.

    A fan is looking to sell a life-size balloon replica of the Sixers' center online. For tools and lumber. Seems like a steal, right?

    Take a look at this truly haunting image.

    Here is the listing:

    I don't know how or why but I am some sort of balloon prodigy, I can make literally anything out of balloons. Ridiculous giant balloon sculptures are great for parties, as a gift or just to leave on someone's porch as a weird and confusing joke. I left a 5 foot T. rex in the first unlocked car I could find and I still laugh about it every day. I can deliver most sculptures by car but large structures like a castle or working balloon pub would need to be finished on site. 
    Lifesized balloon sculptures take all day to make and can run into the thousands of dollars from party companies most of whom don't offer anything so customizable to begin with. I am looking to trade for tools. I got bored with balloons and am moving on to make things out of wood. 

    Sadly, the balloon replica probably has better durability than the real Embiid.
