What lengths would you go to in order to score a free iPhone 7? For one man in the Ukraine, the prospect of getting his hands on this year's latest offering from Apple was enticing enough that he actually changed his name.

iPhone 7, or as he was once known Olexander Turin, took up a local store on their promotion to hand out the latest Apple device to anyone willing to give up their birth name. "It was difficult to accept that and hard to believe it's true," his sister Tetyana Panina  told the Associated Press. "Each person in this world is looking for a way to express himself. Why not to do that in this way?"

Some people online questioned the intelligence of the move, while also clowning Apple for some of their newer design choices:

So if you change you name to iPhone Seven officially, you can get one for free in Ukraine. #NeverExpectedSuchAnOffer @Apple #iPhone7
Does @JackParow have to change his name to Lightning Port Parow now, thanks @Apple #RIPJack #iphone7

Others tried to figure out how to make it work in their favor:

He's got a free iPhone7 though. Shall I change my name to mmm Macbook Pro Ananta?

The big question now is, what's he going to change his name to in order to win a free set of wireless headphones?
