This is the video that uses my very first recording so my voice is super flat and off-key, so most of the comments are about how horrible a singer I am (though most think the video maker is the singer XD, though I am credited in the description, nobody reads that). But I am not phased!
Also so many people hate it because of it’s “evil” nature, XD, like they don’t realize this is a parody and is supposed to be funny.
That the other reaction btw.
Either they hate it since it is evil, they hate my singing but love the lyrics, or they think this is the funniest thing ever.
But wow, over 7 million people have heard my parody and I am so amazed. WOO HOO.
This is supposed be a sort of parody (though that word implies that this is supposed to be humorous) of Frozen’s “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?” It revolves around the Italy Brothers from Hetalia.
This was interesting to make. Unlike the original, where the aging goes from child –> teenager –> young adult, this one goes from toddler/preschooler –> just a bit younger than the “Chibitalia age” –> “Chibitalia age.”
If that makes any sense.
Anyway, I was really experimenting with my voice while doing this. Not only was I singing in an accent, I was doing an impression of a character, sounding like I’m on the verge of tears in the third verse, while still making it sound decent. I hope I was able to do that. I tried to pull off a subtle voice change with this, as well, since the age gaps are much smaller. I had to figure out how to make a mix of an Italian accent and “baby voice.” And since I’m used to belting notes, I had to restrain my voice at certain parts, especially in the beginning. Would a normal toddler have the singing voice of a semi-trained high school student? Yeah, don’t think so.
Now that that’s over…
(Please note that every time I mention years going by, it’s in nation-age terms)
Rome’s young grandsons are living happily with him. Aside from the older one, Romano’s, tantrums, he generally gets along well with his younger brother, Veneziano. That changes when it looks like Rome is favoring Veneziano over him. Feeling rejected, he locks himself in his room. Little Veneziano, completely oblivious to this, hasn’t seen his brother in several days, and tries to get him to come out by asking him “Do you wanna visit Grandpa?” Bitter at both his brother and his grandfather, Romano snaps at Veneziano, and tells him to leave.
As a few years pass, Veneziano still tries to get his brother to come see him. Romano still stubbornly refuses to come out.
Not much longer after that, Romano finally decides to play with Veneziano, though grudgingly. Earlier, Rome had gone out to patrol his nation’s borders, and the boys decide to follow him. However, when they finally find him, Germania is sneaking up to Rome, dagger in hand. The boys start to scream for Rome to run, but it’s too late. They huddle behind a bush as their grandfather falls dead.
Later, all of the nations living under Rome’s roof hold a funeral for him. Everyone attends, except for Romano, who returned to his room, refusing to go. Veneziano is the last to leave the service, and once he returns home, goes up to Romano’s door. He sadly begs for his brother to come out. Finally letting out the tears, Veneziano asks Romano, “Do you wanna visit Grandpa?” In this context, he’s asking Romano if he wants to come to Rome’s grave, so he can say goodbye.
