Wouldn’t You Be Embarrassed If Your Parents Did This for Your Birthday?

A wealthy family in Fujian Province decided to celebrate their son’s birthday in a unique and very public way.

They set up 16 signs every 400 yards or so along along the 308 State Highway to Longhu County, with a photo of the boy and a caption saying: “Welcome to my 16th birthday party!”

At the arched gate near their village, they installed a moving screen that said: “Celebrate the birthday of the Shi’s son!”

According to his parents, their son is in high school and about to turn 16. Four generations of the family will be celebrating together as he is the only boy in the family.

The boy’s grandfather said the ads only cost 1,500 yuan (about $250), and they will take them down after the party is over.
