Watch: Chinese man uses 66 bags of coins to pay for car

A businessman used 66 bags of coins to pay for a car in northern China.

The clip, filmed in Cangzhou City in Hebei Province on May 18, shows a number of workers squatting on the floor in a car shop to count the enormous pile of coins.

 

They spent two and a half days finishing the counting work which estimated the coins' worth to be around GBP15,000.

The car itself cost reported around GBP22,000, meaning the rest of the price was covered by card payments.

The man got the coins from his customers and wanted to spend all of them, reports said.
