If you’ve been on the internet (or just part of the living breathing world) over the past week, you’ve probably noticed that Pokemon Go is quite literally taking over the world. The Nintendo-created game has been wildly popular ever since its released in the mid 1990s, but the new smart phone version has taken the “gotta catch ’em all” craze to a whole new level.
Now, you’ll be hard-pressed to visit any store, park, playground, school, mall, etc. without seeing slews of people (no, not just kids) with their eyes glued to their phones trying to find a new Pokemon to capture.
At least they’re getting exercise..?
Even celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Kevin Jonas have taken a liking to the game.
But no one has become quite as fond of the mobile phenomenon as John Mayer.
The 38-year-old singer, songwriter and guitar-shredder recently made a questionable choice when he spent real-live money on Pokemon Go’s fake version of money called PokeCoins.
John spent a total of 100 precious dollars on the game in exchange for 14,500 PokeCoins — $100 on PokeCoins… PokeCoins!!!
What a time to be alive.
