Cards Against Humanity's co-founder Max Temkin also confirmed the legitimacy of the deals in an email to Business Insider.

"Holy f–k have we got some deals," a new website from the makers of Cards Against Humanity reads. "Don’t be frightened by the deals. Just click and let the savings wash over you."

While many of the items sold on the site could be seen as prank gifts — like a life-size cutout of Orlando Bloom, a portable sauna, a medieval weapon — the site is also selling some pricey items: a marked-down used car, 85-inch smart TVs, and an engagement ring.

This has of course raised some questions on social media about the legitimacy of the sales (and whether the items exist in the first place), but the FAQs found at the bottom of the website insist that the products are "actually available."

Cards Against Humanity's co-founder Max Temkin also confirmed the legitimacy of the deals in an email to Business Insider.

"We have most of these items in hand at the office here (and our office is filled with crazy stuff right now)," Max Temkin said in an email to Business Insider. "This is 100% real and possibly a very bad idea."

The items sold on the website are available in extremely limited quantities and, in some cases, are "one-off" items, Temkin said.

Every 10 minutes, a new product goes live on the website. Here are some of the items that have been sold so far for Black Friday:

An $100 bill sold for $1.

A Renaissance-age spear.

A life-sized Orlando Bloom cut-out which is pretty expensive at face value.

A mahogany casket if you're trying to save money for the afterlife.

An actual used car with 25,000 miles on it.

A portable sauna that looks like a big piece of luggage.

An Applebee's gift card for $800 worth of $1 margaritas

An incredibly huge 85-inch 4K smart TV.

The flight suit from "Independence Day," complete with helmet and boots,

A poncho for when you need the facilities, now.

A hair dyer attachment, but you need to buy your own hair dryer.

An original Picasso-signed drawing.

An engagement ring with a synthetic man-made diamond.

A $20 bill.

The site's "Deal of the Day" is a Cards Against Humanity item: a 300-card "Absurd Box" expansion pack.

People have been running into issues getting their orders to process.

Some users, including at Business Insider, have reported issues with the website recognizing their shipping address as a legitimate place in the U.S. (the website would not recognize BI's offices in New York or San Francisco as valid shipping addresses).

Yet some who successfully landed a deal from the site have posted their email confirmations to Twitter.

Cards Against Humanity has a long history of pulling similar pranks for Black Friday and other special occasions.
