A man, surnamed Wang, spent over $40,000 to buy out the seats in two IMAX cinemas. Apparently, 7 years ago, his former girlfriend broke up with him because he couldn't afford two movie tickets. Wang bought out the theaters to prove she made the wrong choice -- How Gatsby of him.
But doesn't this stunt take "bitter" to a whole new level? You'd think seven years later, the poor guy would have moved past the break up and found a less theatrical way to enjoy his earnings -- no pun intended. One person posted on Wang's microblog:
"Is it really worth working so hard to show off to your ex-girlfriend, who may not even find out about it?"
And what if his version of events aren't entirely accurate?
