Today in WTF comes word from China that some guy bought two gold Apple Watches… for his dog. Wang Sicong, son of Chinese property mogul Wang Jianlin took to Chinese social media site Weibo to show off his pooch’s newest trinkets. Which is weird, but not as weird as the fact the dog already has over 700k followers on the site.
The photos are accompanied by arguably the most pompous caption in the history of social media, which roughly translates to “I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too tuhao [rich and vulgar] so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?”
No dog, we do not have one. Or two. Or even four. But we’re sure you’ll enjoy Apple Watch’s many features, dog. You can use it to monitor your heart when you lick yourself. You can have it count your steps while you chase your gilded tennis ball. Either way, it looks like a good old belly scratch will no longer suffice in the endless pursuit of spoiling man’s best friend.
