Most of us are mocking the huge price tag on the Apple Watch Edition to secretly hide the disappointment of not being able to buy it. But while most of us sulk, a guy named Ronald (that’s all we know about him) has gone ahead and done something crazy to get his hands on the smartwatch. He launched a website featuring a thousand pixel billboard, and is selling each pixel space to practically anyone for $1. When all the pixels are bought, he will have earned $10,000, therefore making him eligible to buy the Apple Watch Edition. Crazy? Not really.

Whether this is absolute low level, or rather unique we will let you decide. If he manages to collect $10,000 for the Apple Watch Edition he will ‘post pictures’ of it, for users to proudly testify that they were a part of ‘Internet history’. If you’re up for charity, head over to his website for more details.
