Woman's Husband Apparently Won't Buy Her An iPhone 5, So She Protests

This Saturday, Apple opened its newest store in Beijing. The Apple Wangfujing store is Asia's largest, and there were around one thousand people lined up at the opening. There was also this woman.

Dressed in red, she carried a sign that read: "My husband wont buy me an iPhone 5; Searching for my jeweled encrusted sugar daddy."

People holding signs and special outfits (here, a printed sweatshirt) are often signs of publicity stunts in China. One popular way to drum up publicity is to have a young woman hold up a sign, saying she's looking for a new boyfriend.

Not sure what's going on here, as this woman's shirt, however, has the same thing printed on it that the sign does.


    What a petulant bitch. Sorry.

      The husband is probably only making around $500-$1000 a month and yet she wants an overpriced phone that's $700 and made by the very sweat 'n tears of her own country-man.

      That's one f'ed up situation.

        um didn't you guys read the article. its a marketing trick or do you like showing off to the world how sexist you are?

          Article says things like this are often used for publicly stunts. It does not say that this was one of them. Maybe you should read articles first

    Will drop pants for iphone 5. Oh, the old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be, Ain't what she used to be, ain't what she used to be. The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be

    What a sad sad world we live in...

    Weak little iphone ad from the local distributor. I don't mind good ads, but bad publicity stunts faking something real are about the saddest things in marketing. some people need to lose their jobs.

    That husband sounds like a smart man to me.

    she must be from Darwin.
