Though the subject of death is rather depressing and bleak, it is nonetheless a subject we find ourselves talking about all the time.
What we will he buried with seems to crop up a lot, with most of us requesting to be buried with our worldly possessions.
However, for one Brazilian millionaire, it is his Bentley.
Thane Chiquinho Scarpa very nearly broke the internet when he revealed he was hosting a burial for his beloved bar, claiming he wanted to ‘drive around the afterlife in style’. Seeing many brand him a show off and incredibly excessive, there was actually a pretty incredible twist to this story.
Receiving lots of media attention, we were all talking about this mad man from Brazil that was putting millions of pounds worth of fine motoring under the ground.
At the ‘burial’, just before the car was lowered into the ground, the businessman revealed that he wasn’t going through with the burial, but was in fact making a social comment about organ donation.
“People condemn me because I wanted to bury a million dollar Bentley, in fact most people bury something a lot more valuable than my car,” Scarpa said at the ceremony.
“They bury hearts, livers, lungs, eyes, kidneys. This is absurd. So many people waiting for a transplant and you will bury your healthy organs that will save so many lives.”
