A local man's alleged R42 000 worth Black Friday deal sofa unit has South Africans in a frenzy on social media as they attempt to come to terms with the exquisite buy.
The Twitter user, @DlalaChampion cut a satisfied figure as he strode to his handle to flaunt the charcoal grey twin unit to his followers. He shared a picture of it and the accompanying receipt, proving that he had indeed made the purchase.
"Decided to surprise my mother with new couches today since it's Black Friday. I've never seen her so happy," the intriguing caption read.
While it was uplifting and alludes to his mother welling up with emotion upon receiving her grand gift, there aren't any pictures capturing the moment. Also, as some Twitter users pointed out, the date on the receipt was deliberately blocked out by the user.
