When a creative YouTuber longed for a tropical getaway he couldn't afford, he manifested one in a hilarious video.

Now, he's going places after the video became a viral sensation with over 652K likes on Twitter.


Anthony Bustamante, a.k.a. @aanthonyy07 on Twitter, filmed himself in front of a green screen which he later filled with images of his "journey" and destinations never reached.

The background frantically switched from a bustling airport to the empty airplane cabin he had all to himself and various locales all around Hawaii.

What really sells his mock-trip chronicle is his infectious charisma and epic personality that is too big for the screen.

He posted the video on Twitter instead of YouTube and wrote:

"I can't afford a trip to Hawaii so I created one."

There is no end to his boundless imagination and over-the-top whimsy.

Watch the video below and see how long you can go without cracking a smile.

Highlights include him filling in as a voguing stewardess, knocking one back by an exotic pool and recoiling from touching lava cascading down rocky terrain.

But perhaps the most memorable scene is him invoking his short-lived sensual side on the beach only to have the waves crash over him and simultaneously crushing his dreams of becoming a supermodel.

In another vignette, he superimposes himself into a scene from Lilo and Stitch, which is appropriate given the song choice of "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" from said movie accompanying the clip.


Those with ambitious vacation plans that are on a tight budget gravitated towards the fake trip video and shared their favorite observations.




Someone book this guy a trip so he can make a real vacation video.

Apparently, travel fare aggregator, Kayak, was paying attention and this happened.



People were not envious at all.

In fact, they rejoiced on his good fortune and demanded updates.


Sometimes when you're broke, it pays to be a dork.

How far will you go to reach paradise?

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
