Anyone wants to buy World Cup air?

The Chinese dude who once tried to sell land on the moon is back again with his new venture. This time, he is selling World Cup air. From Reuters:
Li Jie, who describes himself as chief executive of the Lunar Embassy to China, is selling his "World Cup air" for 50 yuan ($6.25) a bag.

"The air was packed at the World Cup venues while the workers were cutting the grass before matches," Li told the Beijing Daily Messenger. "You can still smell the grass."

Li suggests soccer enthusiasts who are not able to make the trip to Germany hang the green plastic bag around their necks and breathe in the air while watching World Cup matches on television.

"Whichever stadium you like, I can give you its air," he added.
Ah the Chinese. They are ever so entrepreneurial.
