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?

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
