A video of a pair of teens cruising through Ħamrun on top of a bus has drawn the wrath of some Maltese people – but a quick search through their TikToks show that was just the beginning.
@Nuisance69’s TikTok antics show that he and his friends are all about breaking rules and going where no people are allowed go. From scaling dizzying heights to trespassing and sleeping wherever he wants, @Nuisance69 is seriously living up to his name.
And with around 385,000 followers and over 3.3 million likes, his videos have been making a hit.
His video of him and a friend riding through Ħamrun racked up 34,000 views, and was shared on foreign country’s platforms.
“We didn’t have any money for the bus,” @Nuisance69 cheekily said.
@nuisance69We didn’t have any money for the bus???? @tw.visions ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoupage ##bussurfing
People reacted strongly to the video, and an official investigation has since been launched – but people had a lot to say, with some calling them idiots for taking on such a dangerous stunt, while others said they hoped the bus suddenly braked and threw them to the ground… yikes.
But it wasn’t just buses that saw the annoying daredevils scaled…
Hopping onto the back of trucks or buses for a free ride is basically second nature to them.
As cool as the daredevils made out their stunts to be, many people had some serious concerns.
“I believe in liberty and freedom, but the actions of this group put pedestrian drivers at risk for the sake of TikTok clout, which is just crazy to me,” one person told Lovin Malta in reaction to the bus antics.
@nuisance69Me and @tw.visions needed a ride, so we improvised! Follow my Instagram for more! Link in bio???????? ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoupage ##malta ##bussurfing
One video even shows how the teens would set up hammocks outside office buildings to sleep for free during the night – and they clearly weren’t bothered if any security found them.
@nuisance69Ever wondered how we travel with no hotels or accommodation? Like for part 2 of this trip, it’s crazyyy???????????? ##fyp ##travel ##malta
The British teen describes himself as a “professional idiot” – and we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
Though he was briefly ‘arrested’ (or, as he puts it, “handcuffed to a crusty bench for an hour”), he’s seemingly returned home to Manchester, if his stories are to be believed – but for anyone reading this and seeing his videos and getting some ideas: just don’t.
