This is a picture from an expensive Hanoi shopping mall built with Ukrainian mafia money, but I think it could have been taken in about a hundred emerging-market countries.
That is an actual human girl sitting there being an advertisement for Levi’s jeans, or for some kind of retro lifestyle involving reel-to-reel tape decks and Stratocasters that Levi’s wants you to associate with their jeans, or something. Her name, if I recall correctly, was Verka, which was unusual-sounding, and she comes from somewhere in Russia. She said she’s studying at university here for a year.
I’m constantly shocked at the things some companies and people in some places don’t even think to be embarrassed about doing. This is a sort of Amsterdam Red Light District motif? Or something? What are they going for here?
