Mourners left in shock after wife hired scantily-clad strippers to perform a 'sexy coffin dance' at her husband's funeral.
Dressed in lingerie and thigh-high boots, the exotic dancers showed off their moves in a scene more fitting to a strip club than a funeral home.
Bringing a whole new meaning to the Drop Dead Gorgeous, the dancers gyrated around the coffin in the bizarre send-off.
The women, leaving little to the imagination, gave three performances, including a dance to Maroon 5's hit Moves Like Jagger.
At one point, one stripper even seductively draped her body over the coffin in front of the dead man's relatives.
Another stripper even took off her bra at one moment during the funeral—with children in the audience.
And as the pair performed their dance routine, the organizers illuminated a picture of the deceased in the background with colorful lighting.
According to reports, the deceased wife, identified as Mrs. Jian, booked the dancers to give her husband a memorable send-off.
The widow admitted she knew her husband had an eye for strippers. So, she thought hiring strippers would be appropriate to honor his memory.
Reports added that Mr. Jian 'died of stroke and Mrs. Jian had devoted her life to attending his every need.'
Although it seems like a bizarre choice of 'entertainment' for such a somber occasion, this trend has been popular in Taiwan and China since the 70s.
Family members of the diseased often hire strippers to attract crowds. Some people believe the more mourners who attend the funeral, the more honor the dead receives.
Shockingly, hiring strippers isn't even close to being the weirdest mourning trend.
At some funerals, mourners prop up the diseased body and make it look like it's still alive.
The bizarre trend gained popularity in New Orleans back in 2012 with the death of Lionel Batiste, a jazz musician.
According to reports, Batiste didn't want people looking down at him at his funeral. So, before his death, he left instructions on how he wanted his family to place him at his memorial.
At his final send-off, he was standing up, leaning on a lamppost and one hand on his walking cane. He also had a hat tipped rakishly to one side.
A well-known New Orleans socialite and philanthropist, Mickey Easterling also had a similar send-off in 2014.
As she loved an elegant lifestyle, at her funeral, she posed with a glass of bubbly in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
She also dressed in an evening gown, complete with an ornate hat and a pink feather boa.
Additionally, in Puerto Rico, Angel Pantoja Medina is remembered as 'el muerto parao' or dead man standing.
His body was perched against a wall and dressed as a rapper. He also wore his favorite New York Yankees cap.
During his funeral, his aunt Ana Delia Pantojas said:
"All sorts came to see him: Lawyers, judges..."
"Everyone was saying things like, 'for my wake, I want to be in my recliner with a cup of coffee.'"
In another bizarre funeral trend, a cremation company offers grieving families a unique way to remember their loved ones.
Vermont-based company Cremation Solutions uses facial recognition to designs 3D printed urns featuring the deceased's face.
The company only needs one or two photos of the deceased to create the urns.
The company uses a technology that erase blemishes so the deceased will look their best for all eternity.
