Pretending to be in LA? Bloggers take photos outside Costco

Bloggers on Xiaohongshu (Little Red Book) recently flocked to Costco’s Shanghai store to take photos, pretending that they are in Los Angeles.

How to make your photo look like you are in LA? One blogger shared her experience: “The afternoon at Costco Shanghai makes you feel like you’re in LA. The parking lot and the lawn look the best in the afternoon sunlight at 4-5 pm.”

Another one said, “The lawn and the parking lot nearby the entrance give people a sense of the West Coast. I feel like I’m back in Los Angeles. If you want an atmospheric photo pretending to be in LA, hurry up and go there on a day with good weather.” Some suggested putting on clothes in bright colors.

Another tip offered by the bloggers include: "Security guards do not allow taking pictures in the parking lot, so you can only stand on the lawn to take pictures." "The best prop for taking pictures is the shopping cart." "You can buy some boxes of pizza and cola as props in the supermarket before taking photos."

However, their behavior has confused some netizens. “As an adult, isn’t it weird to put yourself in a trolley?” “Even a 1.88-meter-tall man sits in a trolley. Speechless,” some commented.
