On Monday, a villager in Hebei province was buried with a car serving as his coffin.
The villager, surnamed Qi, was apparently quite the car lover and so requested in his will that he be entombed inside an automobile. His family acceded to his wishes.
Video published by the Beijing News shows an old Hyundai Sonata being lowered into an oversized grave with Qi inside.
The story has drawn jokes from Chinese netizens who say that it’s a good thing he was only a car lover, and not say a lover of women or dogs, while also musing about how the grave will likely perplex future archeologists… if it lasts that long.
“Won’t somebody just dig it up in a few days?” wonders one Weibo user.
