A student was seen standing outside of Shanghai’s Sonjiang University with a sign offering to share his girlfriend for cash to save up for the iPhone 6.
His placard, reading “Girlfriend Sharing”, specified that the deal allowed renters and his lady friend to have meals together, study together, play games and go on dates, but no “funny business”. He likewise shared posters on social media and happily sent along pictures of his beloved to anyone desiring a closer inspection.
The girlfriend in question was in on the stunt, of course, and agreed to be hired out for 10 yuan per hour or 500 yuan per month.
We’re imagining a scenario of sitcom-like proportions when that gal ends up falling for the renting suitor. This could get more messy than the time that guy sold his kidney for an iPad.
China was missing from the initial list of imminent iPhone 6 launch locations during its unveiling last week, and the delayed release in China has opened up a huge opportunity in the black market, as well as more time for Apple enthusiasts to scheme up weird fucking ways to save up for it.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus just got a step closer to a China launch, reports claim, since Apple yesterday received approval to tap into the country’s domestic frequencies. Now the company is awaiting approval from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information to go ahead.
