Guangzhou man proposes with 99 iPhone 6s to beat Singles' Day countdown

Over the weekend, one "loser" in Guangzhou determined to become a "winner in life" before Singles' Day on November 11 decided to propose to a female coworker the only way he knew how: with 99 iPhone 6s.

As he goaded her into a heart-shaped ring of 16GB iPhones 6 boxes and professed his love with a bouquet of fresh roses in hand, his lady love simply responded: "Um... You're putting a lot of pressure on me."

Alas, it looks like this proposal worth nearly RMB 600,000 was a flop of mega proportions, and our hapless protagonist will have to celebrate at least one more Singles' Day as just another "loser."
