As befits the show, Fox has yet to reveal any more details on the auction. Clicking on the announcement brings site visitors to an as-yet empty eBay page. We do know that the auction will be “powered by VIP Auctions.” VIP is currently hosting auctions from shows such as Defiance and DaVinci’s Demons. Their eBay profile states that buyers are able to participate in auctions via desktop browsers, mobile devices, or “interactive television”. How exactly one interacts with the television, besides literally hurling $100 bills at the screen when one’s desired item appears, is unclear.
As for me? I’ll be waiting here, hoping to see either Mulder’s old brick of a cell phone or an actual alien suit. Even if my bank account won’t share my enthusiasm. Who needs to buy groceries, anyway?
