A student in Guangzhou, China, used 999 pomelos to confess his love to his dream girl, only to be rejected.
And if things were looking bad for the man, after his rejection, the pomelos were taken in a matter of minutes by onlookers, reports the People's Daily Online.
During his confession of love, he sung a song to the woman a year his senior.
The student, who is in third grade, bought 999 pomelos for the girl on September 4.
According to reports, they met during social activities at their university.
The man could be heard saying as he approached the girl named Mumu: 'My goddess's favourite fruit is pomelo. So I bought 999 pomelos for her to express my love. I love you...'
“女神她最爱吃柚，向她表白的时候，买了好多的柚，九百九十九个柚，代表我一片真心，I love you……”唱着歌，男孩缓步向女孩走去，开始深情表白。
The fruits were arranged into a heart shape and were put on the floor of the Guangzhou Higher Education Centre which is home to some 200,000 students.
He also had 999 love letters with notes saying 'the pomelos contain my love for you' and 'I will always love you.'
In Mandarin, the pronunciation of the word 'pomelo' is similar to 'you'.
他还写了999条“I will always love 柚”、“我对你的爱在柚里”等爱情宣言
The man then announced in front of a large audience: 'I have always liked you since I knew you. Can you be my girlfriend?'
The girl then replied: 'I do not like you. I have always seen you as my best friend but your pomelos can stay with me.'
She then decided to share the pomelos with onlookers.
The crowds including staff from nearby shops rushed to grab the pomelos with some even taking five.
In just two minutes, the fruit disappeared.
