Humans have invented some pretty wacky ways of predicting the future over the centuries, but this man might just have found the strangest.
This brief video, apparently posted from China, is said to show an elderly man trying to tell a woman’s fortune by cupping her breast as she looks on, baffled.
The short clip was posted to video-sharing site Miaopai and shows the man, holding a pair of crutches in his other hand, sitting impassively as he puts his hand inside the woman’s top.
He appears unmoved by what he sees in the woman’s future, as she rests her chin on her hand and even looks bored.
Bystanders also seem bemused by the spectacle, captured by a user called Xiao Yuwen and which has garnered hundreds of thousands of views.
The post prompted skeptical responses from commenters. One suggested it might be “hard to find customers” and another said: “It’s just really kinky!”
Branches of divination in China that have found a more mainstream degree of acceptance include palm reading, face reading and astrology.
