A series of photos of "lonely salespersons" became popular on a famous Chinese forum called "Mop" recently.

These salespeople arrange common commodities into various shapes in supermarkets. The erratic behaviors make people burst into laughter.

A salesman wears mats as armor, a pair of sunglasses and is equipped with a toy submachine gun, which makes him look like the "Terminator."

The salespersons pile blue slippers one by one and finally create a lovely "Haibao," the mascot of the World Expo in Shanghai.

Moreover, they also pile bags of washing powder into a giant pillar, and scrabble up a robot with food.

Although they are called "lonely salespersons," the figures created with different goods bring great happiness to netizens.
