Rich Man Buries His Car for a Great Cause [TWIST ENDING]
Meet Thane Chiquinho Scarpa. He's one of the richest men in Brazil and he announced, no too long ago, that he wanted to bury his car, a one million dollar Bentley, so he may use it in the afterlife. Once this was announced, everyone was jumping on his case for not donating his car for charity or any other worthy cause. Little did everyone know, he had a great cause with a powerful message.
When it came time to buy his car, Thane Scarpa invited the media so they could be in attendance to watch the car's funeral. As the car was going into the grave, he had the ceremony stopped. That's when he came back with this twist ending of a speech.
"People have condemned me for trying to bury a million dollar Bentley. The fact is, most people bury something a lot more valuable than my car. People bury hearts, livers, lungs, eyes, and kidneys. This is absurd. There are so many people out there waiting for a transplant and you will bury healthy organs that can save so many lives. This is the biggest waste in the world. My Bentley is worthless in comparison to life giving organs. There is no wealth more valuable than an organ, because there is nothing more valuable than life.
I officially announce I am an organ donor this week. I'm an organ donor, are you? Tell your family."
It turns out it was all just a publicity stunt for organ donation. A car is just a car. The organs you're buried in can save the lives of many others. Well played, good sir. Well played.
