Sam's Club accidentally labels Switch Lite bundle as a DS Lite bundle

Just a little behind the times on that one

Well here's one that's a blast from the past. I don't know what happened in Sam's Club's computer systems to make this happen, but some sort of snafu has given a Switch Lite bundle a completely wrong name. As you can see in the image above, one of their Switch Lite bundles is listed as a DS Lite bundle! I know the Wii U was confused for the Wii, but I didn't think we'd ever see a mix-up as bad as this!

This clear resin Game Boy could be yours

Now that's a work of art

Artist Daniel Arsham has made countless 'crystal' works of art, which are actually made of clear resin. That doesn't make them any less impressive-looking, though. Arsham's latest creation is a clear Game Boy, which comes with a clear Super Mario Land cartridge as well. Best of all, it could end up being yours!

Arsham is going to put this bad boy up for sale on his official website come Jan. 17th, 2020. There's no price set, but previous works have sold for upwards of $500. Let's see how much money this one ends up pulling in!
