An Italian woman has shared a video of her father defying lockdown to get his morning coffee. Fortunately, he just ordered a drink from his wife through the kitchen window.


The hilarious clip, which was shared on Twitter by the Growing Up Italian account on March 20, shows the woman interrogating her dad concerning where he is intending to go. 

The elderly man then reveals to her that he is going out to get a coffee. "The coffee shops are closed," the woman can be heard saying in the video. "Do you not understand?"

However, his father asserts that he will get a coffee. The woman keeps on urging her father to stay at home, saying everything is closed and that he can't go out.

The man gives no consideration to the requests of his daughter. He tells her that he is worn out and exhausted and insists on going out.

In any case, it soon becomes clear that he wasn't planning on going far. Rather than breaking Italy's lockdown, he only steps out the door.



He then approaches his wife for his morning coffee through the open kitchen window. "Excuse me, is this bar open?" he can be heard asking his wife. "Please may I have a coffee?"

A lot of Twitter users were entertained by the video. As of this writing, it already amassed over 4.7 million views.

Italy is the second-worst affecting country in the world.



One person wrote that the older man is brilliant, adding may he survive the coronavirus and live long. Another added that the video is the best thing he's seen throughout the day. 

As reported by Daily Mail, Italy is the second-worst affecting country in the world. It has seen the most passings from the coronavirus pandemic. The country has been under quarantine with all eateries and cafés closed since March 9.

Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, one nursing home — Bryn Celyn Care Home in Maesteg, Wales — is getting innovative to keep its occupants occupied while staying inside.


The nurses helped residents play a life-sized version of "Hungry Hungry Hippos," a classic children's game, according to PEOPLE.

Recently, Mark Drakeford, the First Minister of Wales, declared that the country will be tightening its restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus.
