Is it just me or do some shots of this mall look almost like Willamette mall? That said, holy shit is this depressing.

You prolly saw it, but there's a few snippets from the documentary in the link in the description. You get the gist, sorta.
lotta space in this mall
Oh God, that Teletubbie.
That sad, lonely Teletubbie.
How much does he have to drink every night to forget.
That Teletubbie does not work at the mall.
Nobody knows who he is or why he's there.

What do you want to bet that what couple really said was "people come hear to fuck."

Yeah thats exactly what i heard as well. In America, this place would be filled with teenagers fucking and smoking dope.
This was shot horribly. There are maybe 3 shots in the entire thing that convey emptiness. The rest is full body shots of some dude walking or sitting down.
I can't help but picture people living in it.
Ya'know, a highway or an airport really WOULD help. Maybe some commercials in Macau or Hong Kong.
It's not IN Guangzhou; Guangzhou is not a town that no one in the west has heard of.
I'm real pissed I didn't know about this thing when I was there. I could've gone and hung out there and watched the teletubbie.

A chilling vision of a postapocalyptic wasteland inhabited only by bootleg Teletubbies and bored security guards.

This reminds of that old Belgian comic La Tour. I can imagine some lonely employee in a remote section growing crops in the planters and raising birds.
Also I really like the smart-ass translator at the end.
This should be mandatory viewing for all Wal-Mart Republicans who still believe consumerism is the light of democracy to struggling nations and that China is an actual threat to be worried about.
Also, if all American malls sell their cheap shit from China, where does China get it's cheap shit?

I want to run around inside it. It would be like my very own Chinese Night of the Comet.
MBA-speak meets Party-speak around 10:45. It's just crazy...you expect it to be a military leader saying something about "our glorious nation" but it's a suit talking about corporate culture and brand building. Holy shit.
nvm the guy with the sign is the PR department.
But 12:41 has a banner that says
LARGE CHAIN BUSINESS INTERPRETATION OF QUALITY OF LIFE
It's like they are trying to teach us a lesson by horrifying us.
Also I don't know if this works outside the US (probably not) but I was having trouble with the PBS Iowa site, so here's the address for the POV site: http://www.pbs.org/pov/utopia/

This largest mall in the world would have been more successful if it was built and operated by people who had actually built and operated a mall before.
