In the course of any romantic relationship, there comes a time when one or both partners simply need to get something off their chest. For two fiery lovebirds in China, that something was their shirts.
According to The Nanfang, drivers and pedestrians on a street in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, were treated to an impromptu striptease when a man and woman in the midst of a verbal altercation began pulling off their clothes.
"The couple started to quarrel at the roadside, then moved to the middle of the street," witness Jiang Dayu told Rex News.
"They completely ignored the traffic that was driving past even though people were beeping their horns and having to weave around them," added Jiang Dayu, who was quick-thinking enough to photograph the scene.
Dayu said the man began to take off his clothes first, followed by the woman, who stripped completely and at one point broke into a naked run of indeterminate length.
Strange as it may seem, the stripping stunt appears to have worked. The couple reconciled, and were photographed leaving the scene together in a state of partial dress.
Perhaps the lovebirds were not heated so much as they were hot. According to Accuweather, the daily high temperature in Dongguan has not dipped below the high 80s since last Wednesday.
