Sounds like a good idea!
You should give it a try, just for an experiment.
Crowd frenzy/behavior has been studied a lot, and exploited often at auctions.
About 10 years ago, when Harbor Freight prices were amazingly low, I had an idea to drop ship their heavy steel items right to US scrap yards, and make a profit. I weighted H-frame presses, engine hoists, and big socket sets. It would have worked and I never would have placed a finger on any of it.
Great idea right :) ;).
