Social media regularly brings us the silly, the weird, and the crazy. Recently, we were introduced to a jacket worth R220 000.

The jacket seems to be studded with shiny gems, but it's not diamonds - that would have pushed the price into the millions.

Popular Twitter user @AdvBarryRoux shared snaps of the jacket with the words "Hello Polo 7 GTI", saying he'd be able to buy a car for that price.

Briefly.co.za noticed that his followers were quick to respond to his tweet, sharing what they'd be able to do with that money or what they'd expect from a jacket that expensive.

@KasiTherapist said he wouldn't buy such an expensive jacket even if he had the money: "Man even if had a R100M, I would never do such! I’d obviously spend that much money, but not on a jacket!"

Some social media users remarked on how the jacket is worth the price of a house:

@lorlapearl7 - A house ko kasi and someone is wearing a house a whole bond house vele
