November 11th, otherwise known as Singles Day in China, is the big day for romance. One man decided to change his single status by proposing to his girlfriend. And apparently, conventional techniques weren’t good enough for him.
The man purchased 99 iPhone 6 handsets and made a heart shaped ring around his girlfriend. The NanFang Insider says that this extravagant display of affection, which took place in Guangzhou, cost the man approximately two years of his salary. That’s around $82,000 for those of you keeping track.
Naturally, spectators gathered to witness this joyful event. Only for his girlfriend to say, “No.” Demand for the iPhone 6 is still huge in China, so he shouldn’t have any trouble reselling the devices. At least he won’t have a ring as a constant physical reminder.
Alternatively, he could hold on to some of the devices and hope that Apple takes inspiration from the movie Her when upgrading Siri. Maybe he’ll find a digital personal assistant that he can hit it off with.
