An unusual episode took place in Istanbul, Turkey, where an Iranian ‘influencer‘ decided to take his luxurious Lamborghini to one of the busiest streets in the city with the trunk full of watermelons to market and sell it online to his followers.
The video shows a Lamborghini Aventador, which is worth about 5 million Turkish liras (more than $ 672,000), and two men selling watermelons worth five Turkish liras per kilo (0.67 cents).

The video went viral as soon as it was published on social media and police soon found the Iranian man who was fined for using his vehicle for a different reason than the one mentioned in his documents and also suspended his driver’s license for 15 days.
According to the Turkish News Hurriyet Daily, the police was able to discover the identity of the influencer thanks to the license plate number of the car that was registered in the city of Antalya and appeared in the viral video.
On September 2, officers arrested the Iranian man, owner of the Lamborghini, whose name was not made public, and on September 3 he was able to leave after receiving his fines.
