Cool Dude Buys Hundreds of Transformers Tickets to Impress Ex

A man in Beijing recently bought hundreds of tickets to IMAX screenings of Transformers: Age of Extinction in order to show his ex-girlfriend what she's missing. (She's missing a a very cool dude!)

According to The South China Morning Post, the man's ex-girlfriend broke up with him and moved from their home city of Nanjing to Beijing after he couldn't afford to take her to the movies. (Right.) Now, seven years later, after acquiring some wealth through running a company in Shanghai, he's showing her just how many tickets he can buy!

Now, after seven years of resentment, Wang has spent a quarter of a million yuan (HK$314,000) on hundreds of the cinema tickets, which he is giving away for free on the internet in order to show off his newfound wealth.

He said on his Weibo blog that after "striving hard for seven years", running his own company in Shanghai, he was finally able to afford to book all of the seats in four of the six IMAX theatres in Beijing for this Friday's showing of Transformers: Age of Extinction, to show his ex-partner what she was missing.

He said he would give the tickets away to anyone who shared his blog post, in the hope that the news would spread to his ex-girlfriend. He wrote, according to the Morning Post:

"I only want to say that you might have been wrong when you made that decision."

See! He's reasonable! He posted copies of his receipts online confirming that the tickets cost 250,000 yuan, which he claims is half his monthly income. As of Thursday, his post had been shared over 110,000 times.
