A Chinese student of Songjiang University, Shanghai desperate to get hold of iPhone 6 said willing to ‘rent his girlfriend’ for a fee to raise enough money to buy the latest iPhone.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has yet to be launched in China but already available in the grey market often double to triple it retail price.
Images of Wei Chu, 25, standing outside Songjiang University, Shanghai holding a ‘Girlfriend Sharing’ advertising board first emerged on Chinese social media earlier this week.
He invited interested passers-by to log on to a nearby wifi network in order to check out images of his 21-year-old girlfriend Xiao Ai, who can be ‘rented’ for 10 yuan per hour, 50 yuan package day, 500 yuan monthly (or RM5.30/hour, RM27/day or RM265/month)
Individuals interested in taking up the offer were given a short biography of the man’s girlfriend, including details on her height, weight and hobbies.
Wei Chu also made clear that the offer was in no way a sexual – explaining that customers would be given the option to take his girlfriend on dinner or study dates.
‘Service items include but are not restricted to: eating together, studying together, saving seats (in libraries/classrooms), three-person dates. Fees generated during dates should be split,’ his placard read.
Wei Chu’s unorthodox entrepreneurship is just one extreme method of raising money to pay for the latest iPhone installment.
Earlier this week, a Saudi Arabian man asked his future brother-in-law for an iPhone 6 as a dowry for marrying his sister, according to the International Business Times.
