First a warning.

This romantic gesture by a Chinese man to his girlfriend described below may make women around the globe swoon.

To celebrate his girlfriend's birthday, Hu Seng, from Chongqing city, thought it would be a nice surprise if he mailed himself - yes, his physical self - to his girlfriend.

Undoubtedly, upon arrival he would pop out of the box and kiss her in front of friends who were in the know.

Things didn't work out so well.

After hiring courriers to deliver the box to his girlfriend, there was confusion as to her address and Seng found himself lost in the post, said Digital Spy.

What was expected to take 30 minutes, took three hours - Seng sealed in a box the entire time.

When he arrived, he was passed out in the box, nearly suffocated from a lack of oxygen in the container.

"I didn't realise it would take so long," Seng said, reported IoL News.

"I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn't want to spoil the surprise by shouting."

Apparently the courrier company had no idea that Seng was in the box and said they would have refused to do it if they had known.
