The 60 million dollar man?

The BBC writes about a man selling options to his brain. The theoretical price could reach $60 million. The big question on everyone’s mind, of course, is whether this man is trying to steal the thunder from the announcement that
The Six Million Dollar Man is being remade into a major motion picture with Jim Carrey.

The BBC explains (excerpt):
A minimum investment of $10 will buy one million neurons.

But buyer beware on two counts:

Keats has suspended the transfer of copyright until he dies, and,
investors can only buy an “option” – the big money comes when he does die.
At that point all six billion neurons in the brain will transfer to the Jonathon Keats Holding Company. Anyone with an option will have the chance to buy their million neurons for $10,000.
