Famous Stardust (Hoax)

How do you feel about having a piece of your favourite celebrity captured in a bottle, literally? Awkward, gross, surreal? Maybe, but it is possible.

Famous Flakes is a store in SOHO that sells a powdered distillation of celebrity skin, which comes with a authenticity certificate (apparently they are verified using the latest techniques in micro-dot arrays). Charles Remarque, the founder, acquires the "samples" through a network of hotel housekeepers, chauffeurs, aesthetics and a few celebrities themselves. Now you can have a "piece" of Britney Spears ($400/gram), Kurt Cobain ($2000/gram), Julia Roberts' Pixie Dust ($150/gram), or a mixture of Brangelina ($350/gram)! But be very careful not to dissipate it...

OK, now we have to tell you... it's not real. It was an April Fool's joke posted by Daily Candy... but it would have been neat!
