If you cannot understand the huge line in front of your local Apple store, try to wrap your mind around this. In the images below, you will see Wei Chu from Shanghai holding up a sign, offering to “rent” his girlfriend out to other men in a hope to raise enough money to buy the latest iteration of Apple’s iPhone.
Understandably, Chinese social media have been all over the story and the images of Wei Chu, standing outside Songjiang University in Shanghai holding up a “Girlfriend Sharing” have quickly become an internet sensation.
The 25-year-old invited passers-by interested in his proposal to check out images of his 21-year-old girlfriend Xiao Ai, before deciding whether to take him upon the offer. The girl, we learn, could be “rented” for about $1.60 an hour, $8 per day or $80 per month. Curiously, the man stipulated that “no funny business” could take place on the dates. Instead, he suggested that his customers spend their time with his girlfriend having dinner or studying.
According to the posters the guy held up, his girlfriend was a willing participant in the fund-raising project, which was advertised online under the slogan: “Sharing girlfriend for pocket money”.
All this for a piece of overpriced plastic… I have no comment to make.
