A computer programmer from Guangzhou in China pulled out all the stops to ask for his girlfriend's hand in marriage, dropping £55 000 (almost R900 000) on 99 brand new iPhone 6s and arranging them all in the shape of a heart. How romantic, right?

According to reports, the enormous sum is the equivalent of more than 17 years the average worker's salary.
Unfortunately, the apple of his eye just wasn't interested, and rejected him in front of a massive crowd of his colleges that had gathered to watch the pricey spectacle.

To make matters worse, pictures of the unlucky lothario have gone viral on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. While no one has published exactly what her response was, bloggers said she brutally rejected him.
Poor fella! Well, we'd be happy to take one of those pesky phones off your hands..?
