The Residents release £100,000 Ultimate Box Set

Upping the ante on the deluxe reissue market, surrealist pranksters The Residents have announced the box set to end all box sets. The $100,000 Ultimate Box Set is housed in a 28 cubic foot fridge, and contains a first release of every Residents album, single, DVDs and videos, which adds up to over 100 titles in total, and a genuine eyeball mask (with top hat).

There are ten fridges and they go on sale on The Residents's site on Christmas Day, which marks the group's 40th anniversary. In this video Randy also teases an extra box, which contains a mystery item for $5 million... Watch the infomercial below.

I would love to get me one of these boxsets.
I never heard of the Residents, But now I am intriqued.
To bad of the price, not everyone can afford that price.
But they sure got my attention.

Omg I bought the mystery item, but I killed myself upon opening
