The Internet is brilliant for many things. You can find tutorials online to learn how to code, you can chat with friends living halfway across the globe, or you can watch this video of an Italian man who came to Malta for cement.
This young Italian YouTuber Canal il Canal literally booked a flight to Malta to buy cement (malta in Italian) and get a permit to start construction here for his parody, ‘Malta Malta: Un sogno da realizzare’.
Guys, he booked a flight to Malta… for a pun.
“This plane will take me to Malta to realise a childhood dream,” the YouTuber told his 68,000 subscribers, smiling and waving as he got on his Ryanair flight to the island. “It’s so pretty here, so everything will be OK. I will ask permission to open my construction firm from the police.”
And guys, we’ll have you know; this man isn’t fucking around.
The mission begins: he asks around the nice people in Malta for some malta, to the obvious confusion of practically everyone. Finally, one guy kindly points him to the direction of a Valletta hardware store.
He’s got his cement; now it’s time to enjoy some sightseeing.
He waves to the good people of Malta and is blessed by some old men as he continues on his journey.
That’s enough fun.
He heads to the Police Commission to request permission to start construction in Malta… and hey presto, it’s granted! (Don’t question it).
He’s got everything he needs. It’s time to get to work with malta.
The parody is based on the Italian artist Elettra Lamborghini’s Spanish song Mala, which translates to “I’ve always been bad, never been good. Since I was a kid I liked the streets. I don’t ask for permission, this runs in my veins.”
On the first day, the video got over 15,000 views in a bit more than 12 hours, and here’s hoping it keeps getting more and more views.
Perhaps our Italian buddy sporting a newspaper hat ain’t that much of a bad boy, but he’s in Malta achieving his childhood dream, and that’s certainly one off the bucket list (literally).
