The average man would never say to himself, "99 iPhone 6s make for a great marriage proposal!"
But this Chinese programmer was not the average man.
As QQ Games reported, the Guangzhou-based programmer shelled out the equivalent of $85,000 buying 99 16-gigabyte iPhone 6s, which he then arranged in the shape of a heart for a public marriage proposal.
Friends captured pictures of the bizarre spectacle — and reported that the young woman on the receiving end of the proposal did not say yes.
Adding insult to the programmer's injury, QQ Games noted that the proposal came just before Nov. 11, which is "Singles' Day" in China.
