According to site The Nanfang, the Guangzhou programmer decided to pop the question ahead of Nov. 11, which in China, is celebrated as "Single's Day" because of the four lonely 1's in the date.

According to pictures obtained by the site, the confident man placed the 99 iPhones into a heart formation. He then proposed to his presumably now ex-girlfriend in the middle of the heart in front of several onlookers. Tencent News reports that the man also had to save two years worth of his salary to pull off the stint.

Following his rejection, commenters then wrote on the site, “How many kidneys did it take to buy those phones?" in reference to the 2011 news story about the boy who sold his kidney for an iPad.
