"Look at my Lamborghini": Man makes vulgar display of wealth
Somewhere in Chengdu, a man with cash to burn decided to publicly declare his feelings for Canadian-turned-Hong Kong celebrity Christy Chung with the help of a mustard yellow Lamborghini.
The car is said to be valued at RMB6 million.
The announcement was made by an ostentatious "post-'70s 'boy'" (i.e., a man in his late 30s or early 40s). In addition to the car, he toted along a massive bouquet of red roses and a large red heart-shaped sign declaring his intent.
"Dear Christy," it read. "I will forever adore you. Your loving post-70s boy."
Photos posted online showed the man with his car and sign attracting a crowd of onlookers.
He then appeared onstage at the event to present the surprised-looking Chung with the bouquet.
Chung has starred in numerous Hong Kong films and has long been a spokesperson and brand ambassador for weight-loss program Marie France Bodyline.
She was in Chengdu to attend a promotional event for the Xiangxie International Apartments (香榭国际) in the city's High-Tech Zone Friday night.
Netizens were not impressed by the man's act, calling him a "fat brother" and deriding him for "showing off."
No word on whether Chung was impressed though. She reportedly was dropped off at the door in a Rolls Royce.
It was also unclear whether the Lamborghini happened to be one of the 7,825 vehicles sold at the 10-day 14th Chengdu International Motor Show, which ended Sunday.
Among those 7,825 cars, 483 were luxury vehicles by makers Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Bentley, and Rolls Royce.
