Celebrity Snare arrived in August / September of 2008, with Prakash Singh doing the announcement. This program allows Gaians to purchase virtual items relating to famous celebrities, Gaia made this possible by collaborating with Virtual Greats. Virtual Greats is the first company to create a platform to bring high-value, copyrighted material into virtual worlds and social networks. They are the world’s leading virtual goods sales and distribution system, connecting celebrities, artists and content creators with a new generation of fans through the online trade of likenesses, fashion, catchphrases, and other virtual representations of real-world talent.
The Celebrity Snare VenturesEdit

thievery and stalking documented studies.
When the Justin Timberlake items were released, there was a preview of a avatar standing with a gift box, in this box was (what appeared to be) a white duck. Gaians who were able to catch this announcement - quickly made post in the SF and GCD, some found it hilarious and unofficially dubbed the item Duck in a Box, while others found it tasteless and also criticized Gaia about their rules and hypocrisy. On September 6, 2011 the item returned as a potential prize for Gaia Item Alchemy.
The item was meant to parody the SNL skit D***k in a Box, the announcement containing the image was taken down a replaced with a new image excluding the parody.
