The Tetris of the Sega Megadrive.: Weird Marketing Stories 2: ROMUALD FONS
The story begins around 2011 when trends on the internet AND MEMES were something extremely geek (Before Gangnam Style):
A peculiar Spanish rock vocalist put on sale in E-Bay a copy of the famous game Tetris from the SEGA MegaDrive console. Article that is believed to exist only about 10 in the world.
He bought the video game online for about 15,000 euros, but he also managed to get it to be signed at an event by AlekséiPazhitnov, creator of the famous game.
Of course, he failed to sell it for a million dollars (the price that Fons was asking for) it was much less, although he easily quadrupled his investment. Money that he insures, he invested in a couple of companies that a few months later went bankrupt.

He is cited as an engineer, but he is not, although he studied that career he never finished it. In his own words: The Internet has pulled his life so hard that going astray to be an engineer is something that wouldn’t benefit him as much.
