It was a drizzling morning. A group of young girls were seen handing out
leaflets to the pedestrians near Xiaobei station at Guangzhou Metro in China.
If there was anything odd about them, maybe it was the masquerade masks
they were donning.
â€śPlease pay attention to me,â€ť said one of the girls in a sweet and
affectionate tone, as a guy took a leaflet from her.
All of a sudden, music began to play in the background. In a coordinated
move, the girls shifted to an empty space nearby the station and started
dancing, while holding signs which read â€śMarry me please!" and "My mumâ€™s been
pestering me to get married. Marry me, please!â€ť
As they rocked their bodies to the beat in the rain, the girls started
undressing, until they were clad only in bras and underwears.
With their sizzling act, the girls had drawn over 100 curious passers-by,
who amidst cheers, claps and catcalls, whipped out their camera phones and
started clicking away.
Even the vehicles nearby stopped to have a good look at what was causing
This went on for around 20 seconds, before it was interrupted by station
Later, in an interview with Guangzhou Daily, the girls explained that they
did this in an attempt to get husbands.
Xingzi, the leader who organised the act, said that they do not understand
why they are still single despite their good looks and successful careers.
Aged between 25 to 30 years old, they are a group of white-collar
professionals working in Guangzhou.
â€śSome guys hesitated to date us because of our high qualifications. We
hope we can find our other halves through this,â€ť added Xingzi.
Unfortunately as interesting as it was, it seemed that it did not work
well with the crowd, that consisted mainly of guys.
While some were clearly intrigued by the steamy scene, many shook their
heads or expressed their disapproval when asked by reporters whether they would
consider dating the girls.
â€śThere are other means such as matchmaking websites. This looks more like
a publicity stunt to me,â€ť said a spectator called Luo.
