Maltese trivia site Quizando recently took to Valletta recently to quiz the literal man on the street about some fun facts. The website’s mascot presented unsuspecting shoppers with some simple questions and offered them four possible answers. Much confusion and hilarity ensued.
In one video the Quizando mascot shows a large picture of Stonehenge, and simply asked what ‘ancient structure’ the people are looking at.
Hilariously, the answers ranged from Windsor Castle to Delimara Station, with many Maltese folk simply assuming that they were looking at Ġgantija…proving they had probably never actually been to Ġgantija.
Everyone from whole families, to nuns to market vendors quickly became engrossed in the challenge, trying to figure out which monument they were looking at.
In another video, the Quizando mascot asks about the man behind the classic song ‘Space Oddity’. Some people think it’s George Michael, others think it’s Freddie Portelli, and some just elect to sing for the camera, clearly enjoying the large crowned pink brain that has appeared before them.
Either way, people seemed to enjoy being quizzed and have their mental prowess – or lack of them – tested. At least now you know that next time you need to know about Neolithic temples or pop singers, you should head to Wikipedia, not the streets of Valletta.
