Three girls have risen to claim their title on TikTok in Malta – The Ħamrun Heathers. As a theatre nerd, they get a massive stamp of approval (I hope they know Heathers the musical – if any of the Ħamrun Heathers is reading please tell us in the comments below!).
These three girls are meme-ing it up on TikTok with their local-based satire and references. Here are 10 typically Maltese TikToks the Ħamrun Heathers have produced!
1. Faqqa Polo (F**king Mint)
They changed this meme up and made some relatable statements about themselves in Maltese and instead of replying with “f**king mint” they replied with most Maltese people’s go-to mint – Polo. Also, we got introduced to their names which is cool!
“Neville ma jsuqx allura jkollu jiddependi fuq Tallinja – FAQQA POLO!”
2. A Sure Vote For PN – Delia Is Over The Moon!
They danced to YMCA with their backs to the camera while using the face-tracking feature on TikTok, and then they turned around. The catch is: whoever’s face the camera lands on has to vote PN in the coming election! Caitlyn’s face was priceless!
3. Spilling The Tea On The French While In France
“Ħamrun Heathers do Franza!”
This clip shows how most Maltese are on holiday – complaining about everything… and we love it! The sheer relatability and comedy in this TikTok are goals!
“Għandek toilet maħmuġ.”
4. Cream tal-Bebbux
An iconic Maltese advert that most people know (if you don’t know it, you’re too young). But basically this man with a very thick Arabic accent would advertise snail cream, and it was quite funny. The Ħamrun Heathers parodied it to a T with their quirky mannerisms.
5. Knorr Advert
Our Ħamrun Heathers have also shown interest in the business and marketing world – they basically made a rad advert: “tal-Knorr”. Knorr really needs to sponsor them!
Also, someone was filming all three of them – do we have a Veronica Sawyer in the squad? WE NEED TO KNOW!
6. Ugly? Where?
Whenever anyone calls you ugly, this is the video you need to reference!
7. Politically Infatuated
The Ħamrun Heathers are clearly very much interested in politics, if this parody of Lizzo’s song Boys is anything to go by. In fact, in this TikTok they are showing their love for various politicians in our contemporary history – even though, they don’t seem like they’re very fond of Simon Busuttil!
8. You Don’t Like Me?
“Busli għajni” – the iconic response to anyone who tells you they don’t like you!
9. A Maltese Girl’s Typical Summer
A Maltese parody and twist on Miss Argentina’s song What I Know Now from the musical Beetlejuice – pretty accurate description of a Maltese summer!
10. Maltese Boys? No!
“Qatt ma jien se ngħabbi Malti għax kollha antipatki!” Anyone can relate? I am still waiting for someone to prove me wrong!
BONUS: The Ħamrun Heathers’ Humble Beginnings
This is the OG TikTok that gave us the Ħamrun Heathers! A parody on the iconic song Big Fun from Heathers the musical with a Maltese twist at the end – you really need to see it!
