A video capturing the amusing moment of an Italian man mistaking the sacred ‘Om’ symbol for the number 30 while exploring a crowded market has taken the internet by storm. Shared by Surbhi, the wife of the Italian man Dario, the candid footage quickly went viral, leaving netizens in stitches. Surbhi shared the video on Instagram with the caption, “My Italian husband wants to buy Indian 30s.”

In the video, Dario excitedly points at various items, exclaiming, “Oh, there are more 30s!” Surbhi, perplexed, asks, “What? What is 30s?” The camera then reveals several items on the shelf adorned with the “Om” symbol. Finally, Dario looks at the camera and realizes, “It’s Om.”

Since its upload, the video has garnered over 3.2 million views, drawing numerous reactions from viewers. 

“He is hilarious, but such a nice man,” remarked one user, capturing the sentiment shared by many.

Others expressed surprise at Dario’s innocent interpretation, with one person stating, “Omg, all my life I never saw it. Now I can’t unsee it.”

“Never in my wildest imagination could I think 30,” wrote another user, while someone else quipped, “Wow, That’s a fresh perspective.”

Some users lightened the mood with humour, joking, “Don’t show the swastika… Guy will lose it,” and “Cutest video of the day.”

Many also tried to make sense of his perspective. “He’s actually not wrong because there’s a reason it looks like a 3. That’s because it explains the Trinity which is creation, sustaining, and destruction,” stated one user.

Dario’s innocent mistake has not only entertained but also offered a unique perspective on cultural symbols, resonating with viewers worldwide.
