A man riding a flashy Lamborghini has made waves on social media for making money ‘fall from the sky’ in Hong Kong – and a lot of people have enjoyed picking up as much of the cash as they could, including a number of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who were lucky enough to be on that particular spot when it literally rained money. Wow!
It all started when the man in the Lamborghini arrived at Fuk Wa Street, Sham Shui Po in Hong Kong. Although the street was busy at the time,the man started filming and asking his viewers:
“Today, December 15,is FCC’s big day in announcing the trading race. I hope everyone here will pay attention to this important event …[I] don’t know whether any of you will believe money can fall from the sky.”
As he finished talking, the camera pans out and shows money falling from the sky – or at least from the balcony of one of the tall buildings in the area. As the banknotes flew down to the street below and even further as the wind blew them away, a lot of surprised people began to collect the money.
This would soon lead to a traffic jam in the busy street as people were in a frenzy to pick up as much money as they could.
While many people were happy with the downpour of blessings from the sky, the cops were not amused. The ‘money rain’ had caused a traffic jam as many people went to the middle of the street to catch the money.
Police have since traced the publicity stunt to Wong Ching-kit, known online as the ‘Coin Young Master’. He is identified as the owner of Epoch Cryptocurrency, a Facebook page that promotes cryptocurrency.
However, due to the stunt, he could be in trouble with the law and might face not just fines of up to HK$5,000 ($640 or Php34,000) but also jail time of up to 12 months. Oooops.
“Don’t blame it on me,I also don’t know why money could fall from the sky,” the young man simply shrugged when asked why he did it.
The police are not going to believe that excuse, of course…
