The weirdest things in the $80k Oscars swag bags


Everybody loves swag.

But Oscars swag? It's on another level, and we definitely do not all get it. The gift bags are aptly named "Everyone Wins at the Oscars," meaning lose a statue, still get awesome stuff. The "stuff" is both luxurious ... and weird.

There's a trip to Vegas worth $9,000. A tour through Japan worth $15,000. (Via YouTube / VisitLasVegas)

 But it gets weird. Ever heard of the O-shot procedure? It's all about vaginal rejuvenation and enhancement, and nominees can get it if they want, thanks to the swag bag. It's worth $2,700. (Via WPBF)

Can't forget the guys though — their gift is the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System. What's the Academy trying to say? This procedure is way more expensive — worth $16,000. (Via YouTube / Mark Bishara)

There are smaller items, too — candies, teas, organic maple syrup.

Oh, and his-and-hers Mace pepper spray guns. Maybe to take out whoever actually won in your category. (Via Mace.com)

But perhaps our favorite — remember that trip to Vegas? It also includes a face-to-face meeting with Boyz II Men. Because, you know, why not?

The gift bags are put together every year by LA-based marketing firm Distinctive Assets. Well, they're certainly distinctive — and full of bizarre assets. Head to Newsy to get all the best moments from the Oscars Sunday — who wins ... and who loses.
