Thought Goldmember wore a lot of gold? Meet his Indian opponent, Datta Phuge. Both have expensive taste, are blinding to the eyes, and get chicks but only one eats his own dead skin. That last statement could be proven otherwise if witnesses exist.
According to Huffington Post, the 32-year-old millionaire Datta Phuge arranged for 15 goldsmiths to slave over his solid gold get-up. In order to perfect the gold threads, the team worked 16 hours a day, for two weeks. All for one man in Pune, India to score some booty.
Maybe the guy never caught on that puppies serve as an equally effective chick magnet.
The 22-karat gold shirt that Phuge sports, weighs a whopping 7 pounds. As his self acclaimed “investment” contains imported white velvet, 14,000 interwoven gold flowerings, six Swarovski crystal buttons and a gold belt, it was simply not enough. The leftover gold was crafted into matching cuffs and a set of rings.
Although Datta Phuge claims his antics for creating such an investment derive from his passion for gold, he expresses additional reasons. “I know I am not the best looking man in the world, but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?”
It is safe to say the man was desperately seeking a “golden girl” for his “family jewels.”
