Not all of us were lucky enough to book a fancy getaway to Southeast Asia for Chinese New Year.

This video sketch from comedy group Mamahuhu was released in 2018 and shows what it's like for that one poor guy still stuck in town as he struggles to survive after everyone disappears from Shanghai.

Filmed and edited from start to finish in just one week, this short video captures Shanghai at its most empty.
