Blowing up 20,000 pounds for a vuvuzela!

Crazy business

Austria-based jeweller Klemens Pointner said: “I met the businessman at a trade fair in Moscow. He asked me about the possibility of modifying one of the vuvuzelas for a football mad business contact and I said it would be possible.”

The Sun quoted him as saying that the hardest part was “getting hold of one as there were very few in Austria and all these had been sold out right at the start. In the end I had one especially imported from South Africa. The price was close to 20,000 pounds.”

He said the vuvuzela, which originally cost 2 pounds, was covered in white gold and it also features a one-carat diamond.
