Apple iPhone enthusiasts are known to go that extra mile when it comes to expressing their love for the gadget. It’s now a tradition that iPhone fanatics will invariably queue up outside stores a day before any new model is officially launched. But there will always be some who have the capacity to shock and awe.
One man from Mumbai went few notches ahead to express his love for the new iPhone X that was launched yesterday. Yes, you read right.
Mounted on a horse, the man from Maharashtra’s Thane took out a procession to bring home not his dulhan, but his pre-ordered iPhone X. With a placard in hand that read, “I love iPhone X,” he had a band party following him to the store in Thane’s Naupada district on Friday, November 3.
According to news agency ANI, “Pallival (the buyer), went riding a horse with a procession and a band party to receive his iPhone X at 6:30 pm at Thane’s Hariniwas circle.” And he received his new mobile phone sitting on the horse itself from the store owner Ashish Thakker, the report added.

The new iPhone owner made sure his happiness was witnessed by all as his quirky publicity stunt made headlines. The photos of the man with a banner in hand got everyone talking on Twitter and many were left in splits.
@Apple could appoint this man as its brand ambassador to India. 😂

Well If I were throwing 1 lakh on a phone then sure as hell I’d choose to go on a horse with dhols playing along 😁

The band-baaja would have cost less than a tenth of the phone I’m guessing

I totally agree with THIS MAN.
He has understood the PRIME reason of buying #iPhoneX is to show-off to the HAVE-NOTs
If anyone spends $999 (or Indian price Rs.89,000) on a mobile phone, he must at least show-it-off “properly”https://t.co/yOPdTcGoX0
