People Can't Get Over Post Malone's Love For Costco

Post Malone is a little late to the party, but now that he's finally a Costco member, the party can start in earnest. The 25-year-old pop-rap superstar, who gets almost as much attention for his face tattoos as his music, went on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Dec. 16. One of the first topics Kimmel and Malone discussed was the singer's love of Costco.

Malone explained his decision to join the ranks of the 100 million Costco members worldwide, came after careful deliberation over the pros and cons. "I never knew the beauty of Costco," Malone told Kimmel, via a remote video call. "And one day I woke up, and I had, like, an epiphany, and I was just like, 'Let's go to Costco.'"

Other than the one moment at the start of his Costco adventure that he said was kind of like a trip to the Department of Licensing, Malone came away thoroughly impressed. "We get up, get out of bed, go to straight to Costco. I got my membership card. It's the worst picture on the back I've ever seen. I look terrifying." However, Costco itself, looked a lot better in Malone's eyes. "It's a beautiful place," he said. "It's like grown-up heaven."

Post Malone loves Costco but isn't a fan of the free samples

One thing Costco members love about the warehouse retailer is the free samples. Costco brought the samples back in June, in a limited way, after doing away with them during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic (via Taste of Home). Malone, however, is not a fan. "I'm not a sample guy," he told Kimmel. "I'm not a very patient guy. I like to get in and get out, get my goodies...I think we should just get rid of the samples completely — or let you just sample stuff off of the shelf."

While both Kimmel and Malone professed their love and admiration of Costco, we're confident this wasn't a paid plug. Costco spends exactly zero dollars on advertising (via Investopedia). Nor is this the first time Malone has sung the virtues of a high-profile company for no compensation. In 2018, Malone took the other late-night Jimmy, Mr. Fallon, to "his favorite restaurant" — Olive Garden (via YouTube).

Free plugs aside, Post Malone has been in some high-profile commercials for food and beverage companies, including a TV commercial during the 2020 Grammys for Flamin' Hot Limón Doritos and a 2020 Super Bowl ad for Bud Light Seltzer (via Newsday).
