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?

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
