Look, it might be a big coincidence – but following the release of Baby Driver, iPod sales on eBay went through the roof.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, do it – but also you might not know that it pretty heavily features the retro music player and looks to have inspired a whole bunch of us to jump online and experience a bit of nostalgia for ourselves.
In the week of the movie launch eBay.com.au tells us it saw sales for Apple iPods rocket by 929 per cent. In the following weeks, and after news broke they would be discontinued, there was an increase in sales of a further 52 per cent.
There were 107,354 total product listings of iPods on the site, and it seems we were yearning to snap up what will soon very likely be considered a collector’s item.
Even amongst a time of fast paced evolving tech, it seems Australians have fallen in love with the classic iPod all over again. Thanks, Edgar Wright.
