Guy Can't Afford A Real Trip To Hawaii, So He Creates A Hilarious Green Screen Video Instead

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?

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
