If you remember the Dreamcast, you probably remember how closely tied Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst was to its marketing push. He probably signed tons of Dreamcasts back in the day, but one celebrity memorabilia-themed seller is having an awful time trying to sell one.
eBay seller “hollywoodstorage1” has failed to sell this signed Dreamcast twice now, trying to start the bidding for it at $700 or offering a “Buy It Now” option for $1,000. Despite demand for the console itself generally being consistent, the Durst signature it not enough to make up for the apparent damage on the unit, normally priced on the retro market for around $60.
Back when the Dreamcast was new, SEGA partnered up with Durst. Demo stations were set up at his Limp Bizkit concerts. They also used his image for marketing material, particularly regarding the Dreamcast’s online capabilities. Poor Fred Durst.
