Just about every resident of one major Australian city was asking one question Monday.
What in the world could warrant a $4,000 sky-written apologetic love note?
Rob Vance of Skywriting Services Australia told the Brisbane Times one man asked him to write this message to an unknown recipient.
"Love you xx," read one part of the message. "I'm sorry," said the rest. As the The Brisbane Times noted, the "xx" represent kisses.
The message was clear but the identity of the messenger wasn't so certain. All that Vance could confirm about the person behind the apology was that he was an "interesting guy."
"No, he was calm, cool and collected," Vance recounted of the man who paid him to do it.
The mysterious message appeared over the city's skyline. A local news reporter tweeted photos as the message was being written.
Vance said he'd ask the man for permission to give more details, but added this isn't the first time he's profited from someone else's mistakes.
"It's usually along the same lines – someone saying sorry and that's basically it. I'm sorry Barbara' or something like that," Vance said.
The sky artist further explained how the "tricky" process works.
"For us the words are back to front and upside down. We're working in three dimensions and can't see what we're doing," Vance added.
