A Nigerian man recently created a huge buzz online after spending $90,000 on a brand new BMW X5 and using it as a casket to bury his late father in. The man, identified simply as Azubuike, had reportedly lost his father to old age and decided to send him off on his final journey in a luxury car. So he spent a small fortune on a brand new BMW X5, placed the old man’s body inside and buried it in an extra-large, six-foot-deep grave, near his village. A photo of the car being lowered into the grave by pallbearers under the watchful eye of Azubuike recently went viral online and caused quite the controversy.
- Do you find it offensive that this man had his father buried in such an expensive car?
- If you could choose one car to be buried in, which would you choose and why?
