Chinese guy freaks out office by showing up in Iron Man armor

There are things one expects when heading into the office. Iron Man is not one of them. So you can only imagine how surprised the people of Shanghai were when a fellow telecoms employee dressed in a very realistic Mk-1 costume showed up unannounced.

Reactions to the scene were all over the map. The confused stares? We get that. The screaming and the running away? Yeah, we're right there with you.

The biggest surprise, though, had to be the apparent positive reaction from the higher-ups of the company. According to the Iron Man in question, Wang Kang, "They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me." Apparently, some of his female co-workers were also quite taken with his creativity.

We have to wonder—would this fly in an American office? Our guess is "probably not." Even still, no matter how many people might roll their eyes (or flee in terror), it doesn't seem as though that will stop Wang Kang.

"Life needs passion, and I hoped my armor could trigger their passion for life," he said. Kang plans to continue with the Iron Man Mk 2 next.

Godspeed, sir.
