How one man’s stolen iPhone made him an internet celebrity in China

This may be the most unusual yet heartwarming story you will ever read.
It starts with an American journalist having his phone stolen at a bar in New York, and ends with him becoming a celebrity in China and forming a lifelong “bromance” with the man who had his phone.

Matt Stopera noticed something was wrong with his phone in January. While searching for a photo to Instagram, he discovered that his supposedly private photo stream had been inundated with photos of a Chinese man taking selfies in front of an orange tree.

Who was this man? Where did this orange tree come from? Stopera had no idea. This is just the beginning of the epic story which is detailed in the Buzz Feed link below.
