The mayors, who appear to be from various Italian communities, basically just run around yelling at people to go the fuck home. And honestly, it’s pretty great advice.
In 1 minute and 46 seconds, you get to witness countless leaders threaten their citizens with flamethrowers and death in an attempt to make them self-isolate.
“I’m getting news that some would like to throw graduation parties. We will send over the police. With flamethrowers,” President of Campania Vincenzo De Luca says.
“I’m the Mayor. You won’t “stroll” into my town,” another added.
Others took a slightly more aggressive approach, dropping a casual f-bomb.
“I’m going to address you all,” one mayor said. “Where the fuck are you all going?”
The lesson here? Don’t fuck with Italy’s mayors. They will put you in your place. Immediately.
“I am the mayor of this city. I will make you follow this decree.”
Want a haircut? Not if major of Lucera Antonio Tutolo can help it.
“Getting in mobile hairdressers, what the fuck is that for? Do you understand the casket will be closed? Who the fuck is supposed to even see you with your hair all done in the casket?”
And last, but definitely not least, there’s Giuseppe Falcomatà, the mayor of Reggio Calabria, who informed a citizen that he is not Will Smith and we are not living in I Am Legend.
“I stopped him and said, ‘Look, this isn’t a movie. You are not Will Smith in I Am Legend. Go home.
You heard the men, stay home. Don’t make Scott Morrison bust out the flamethrower.
