Anyone wondering what it tastes, smells and feels like inside that brown paper bag Sia wears on her head may now have a chance to find out. 

The Australian-born anti-pop star and songwriter is offering up a jar of her own breath for auction at the Adelaide Film Festival's film quiz night charity event in Australia this Friday.

"Gorgeously and magnificently, she breathed into a jar for us," film festival director and CEO Amanda Duthie explained on the event website. "Her breath is in a Mason jar with silver sealing wax, so no one can accidentally open it. Whoever wins will be able to break the seal — or just let it be."

Other live auction prizes include two roles as clowns in the 2015 Credit Union Christmas Pageant and a role as an extra in Adelaide-raised Australian film director Matthew Saville's new movie. 

Proceeds will help support Adelaide-based filmmakers.
