If you've ever felt guilty about not doing enough for your parents, then you might not want to hear about this incredibly expensive million dollar funeral.
Featuring over 600 monks, 16 gold-plated cannons, eight stretch limos and a coffin with an estimated cost of over $500,000, the million dollar funeral attracted over 10,000 onlookers. In fact, the sheer scale of the production meant that the only place that could accommodate it was a gigantic school's sports field.
The ceremony was planned and paid for by a wealthy Chinese businessman and his siblings, who wanted to honor their mother for raising them almost singlehandedly. Needless to say, when it comes to showing your parents how much they mean to you, the bar has definitely been raised.
