Netflix streaming comedy Schitt's Creek came to an end last year following a five-year run and six successful seasons but it's not too late for fans to bag themselves a piece of show history.
Annie Murphy, who played Alexis in the popular show is auctioning off a paper plate but this is no ordinary paper plate, it featuring the original iconic lyrics to A Little Bit Alexis. And she's hoping to raise a lot of cash for charity.
For those of you who don't know, A Little Bit Alexis is the eponymous theme song to the reality show her character starred in as a teenager.
Die-hard fans will recall the song featured in season five episode The Hospies, when Alexis memorably uses A Little Bit Alexis to audition for a local production of Cabaret.
Annie previously auctioned off a black dress she wore to her very first red carpet - Canadian Screen Awards in 2015 - for the phenomenal amount of $7,000.
And this time around she took to Instagram to explain the value of the seemingly scrap paper plate. She uploaded a snap and captioned it, 'What do you do when you're recording a song at @banquetsound where apparently @nixonboyd doesn't believe in the paper but does believe in pens? You write your lyrics on a paper plate and take that into the vocal booth with you.'
The Emmy winner added that the item — "in all of its paper platey glory" — was crucial to the process "because my brain is old and full of holes."

Bidding on the paper plate was already up to $6,000 according to show creator and star Dan Levy, who posted an Instagram story about the "iconic plate" with the proceeds due to be split 50-50 between Eva's Initiative and another charity.
Fans have been asked to send their bids in via email to Annie at email@example.com
Meanwhile, for any fans missing the show, a new Schitt's Creek music video has been released and it's going down a treat among fans who miss watching the Rose family in action.

Released by CBC Gem, the Canadian channel's free streaming service. It's thought the video was put out to help promote Schitt's Creek in Canada. But either way, it's loveable from start to finish - from the old-school MTV music video labeling at the top of the vid (the song is credited to Rose Video Records) to the earworm-y "Schitt's Creek" chorus.
