(PCM) In a move to show off his new found wealth to his now ex-girlfriend a Chinese man recently purchased over $40,000 in movie tickets. He ended up block-booking IMAX screenings of Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” at theaters all over the city of Bejing.
When asked what triggered the movie ticket buy out, the man explained that when he and his ex were still together he could not afford to take her to the cinema and she broke up with him seven years ago.
In the time after the break-up the man spent the seven years building up his own company and personal wealth, which eventually led to him being able to pull off the showy stunt. According to the newspaper in China, the man spent about $250,000 yuan on the tickets, which according to him is only half of his monthly income.
The man went on to claim in a blog post that he would giveaway tickets to anyone who shared his post and story online, in an effort to get the news back to his ex-girlfriend. He claims in the blog post that he only wanted her to realize that she may have been wrong about her decision.
Well, we are sure she knows that now, but it definitely seems like quite an excessive way to prove a point!
Over 1,500 online bloggers and social media users shared the mans story and received free tickets to the film. No word if the ex-girlfriend ever found out! We are guessing Michael Bay can thank the man for at least part of the estimated 97 million the film grossed in China!
