article imageDid a wealthy Brazilian bury his Bentley in his garden?

By Mike White     Sep 30, 2013 in Odd News
A rich Brazilian entrepreneur pretended to bury his Bentley, valued at 300,000 pounds in his garden, so he could continue enjoying the vehicle in the afterlife. The pretend "burial," however, was actually a stunt to promote organ donation.
The burial was just like a traditional funeral for a human being that has died, according to searswms.com. It included a wreath for the car.
"I decided to do as the pharaohs," Chiquinho Scarpa explained on Facebook. "I will bury my favorite car, my Bentley, in my house garden."
Carscoops.com reported that Scarpa, after receiving a lot of negative reaction, when he announced his plans, later held a press conference, promoting the national week of organ donation in Brazil.
There was a sign behind the businessman at the press conference, which said, "It's absurd to bury something much more valuable than a Bentley: your organs." He also held a card which stated," I am an organ donor. And you?"
His photo explained that he had not buried his car, noting that many thought that it would be "absurd" for him to do so. The statement added that he believes it is "absurd" for people to bury their bodies without donating organs. He said taking such an action can save many lives and added that "nothing is more valuable" than human organs.
Dailymail reported the Scarpa is 62 and has all the riches he would ever want in this life.
