In a video that’s currently making the rounds on Maltese message threads and social media, a naked man can be seen atop the newly refurbished Triton Fountain in Valletta.
From the limited amount of information we have on this golden nugget of a footage, it seems like the incident happened early this evening, sometime after sunset, with the beautifully-lit fountain as the centre stage.
The video isn’t even 10 seconds long, but it holds some choice moments, like when the man (bare-assed, because of course) struggles to make his way down, while a nonchalant woman sitting at the fountain remains totally oblivious of it all.
According to NET News, police officers who were called on the scene were actually unable to reach and retrieve the naked man, who should from now on start being called the fourth (considerably smaller) triton. Many are saying the man might’ve been pulling the stunt as part of a dare, but who’s to say this wasn’t some elaborate way of showing his affection on Mother’s Day?
Whatever the real reason behind the incident, the guy has just guaranteed a way for tens of thousands of people to see his ass on a Sunday night.
