A woman raised eyebrows among mourners after hiring two strippers to perform a 'sexy coffin dance' at her late husband's funeral.
Family and friends of the deceased were left in shock after the two women, wearing nothing more than a pair of thigh-high boots and skimpy lingerie, got up to gyrate alongside the coffin in the bizarre send off.
The girls gave three performances, including a dance to Maroon 5's hit Moves Like Jagger, at one point draping themselves over the casket mid-routine.
The man's wife, identified as Mrs Jian, booked the dancers for her husband's send off to ensure his final journey was a memorable one.
Mrs Jian admitted she knew her husband had an eye for the ladies and thought hiring strippers would be appropriate to honour his memory.
According to Taiwanese news reports, Mr Jian suffered a stroke before his death in early April, and Mrs Jian devoted her life to attending his every need.
Despite appearing to be a bizarre choice of 'entertainment' for such a sombre occasion, Taiwanese funerals have often been know to feature strippers since the trend became popular in the 1970s.
Sexy dancers are often hired to attract crowds, as Taiwanese culture suggests the more people who attend the funeral, the more honour was given to the deceased.
Marc Moskowitz, an anthropologist at the University of South Carolina, said: "In traditional Chinese and contemporary Taiwanese culture this signifies that for an event to be fun or noteworthy it must be full of noise and crowds."
Marc, who filmed the documentary 'Dancing for the Dead' in 2011, told the Business insider: "As I watched these performances I came to appreciate the idea of celebrating someone's life to help assuage the feelings of grief."
