He got 99 iPhones but gettin’ hitched ain’t done.
With “Singles’ Day” looming in China (Nov. 11), one man thought the time was right to try to tie the knot with his girlfriend, preventing them both from having to participate in any future 11/11 festivities.
As a keystone of the young programmer’s marriage proposal were 99 iPhones 6’s placed on the ground and arranged in the form of a heart. The setup, as reported by The Nanfang, cost the love-bitten chap two years’ salary (about $82,000).
But that evidently wasn’t enough. She said no. Siri, how do you mend a broken heart?
Whether our once-hopeful groom likes it or not, pictures of the ultimately sad event (seen above) are up on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
Remember, it’s better to have loved and lost 99 iPhones than never to have loved at all.
