Up for grabs on the buy-and-sell site are Ricky Baker’s aforementioned “skuxx as hoodie”, Uncle Hec’s “Classic Swannie” and Waititi’s original, coffee-stained script for the film.
All of the proceeds from the auctions are going towards Foster Hope, a non-profit organisation that creates backpacks full of essential items for children going into foster care in New Zealand.
The description on the hoodie reads, “Ricky Baker (played by Julian Dennison) is the star of Hunt for the Wilderpeople – the latest film by director Taika Waititi. He’s ok with us putting his hoodie up for auction but says he wants to run it himself.
You have been warned: he’s a bit of a bad egg! For proof watch his teaser trailer here:
Feel free to ask him any questions. Can’t guarantee he’ll be very helpful though. Also can’t guarantee that he hasn’t spilled tomato sauce all down the hoodie’s front.”
