(Global Times) If your idea of a boyfriend is someone to hold your shopping bags while pretending not to be bored, a South China mall had a deal for you.

Displays containing scannable "boyfriends" attracted crowds of Christmas shoppers over the weekend, many eager to take them out for a spin, local news outlet hkwb.net reported.  

Photos from the Friendship Shopping Mall in Haikou show six suited men standing in pink, doll-like boxes, each fixed with a scannable QR code.

For 1 yuan ($0.15), the paid escorts would shop, snap photos and keep their renter company for an hour at the mall, but physical contact is not on the menu, signs read.

The men, all over 1.8 meters tall, are mall employees.

"I escorted four women on Christmas Eve. They were all in their twenties," said one of the escorts surnamed Zhuang.

The publicity stunt had served up the latest flavor-of-the-minute at the buffet that is China's sharing economy.

"My friend told me there were shared boyfriends here, so I came over to check it out," said one woman in line. "I can show him off on WeChat just in time for Christmas," she said.
