A Checco Zalone he likes to surprise, which is why his decision to publish is not surprising La Vacinada, his new musical catchphrase, overnight, without an announcement, without an official press release, nothing. The video, which in a few hours went viral on Facebook, sees Checco Zalone in the role of Oscar Francisco Zalon, a man of art who, aboard a convertible, whizzes through the red streets of Salento, bumping into an exceptional “native”: the Oscar winner Helen Mirren who, as we know, has adopted Puglia as his second home.
She is the “vacinada” of the title, the pretext that Zalone uses to launch afterwards Tolo Tolo, another clear message of civil commitment to the Italians: the invitation to get vaccinated to fight Covid-19. “L’immunidad de flogge is not yet available, but menomal que estàs la vacinada” sings Checco Zalone in Spanish, giving way to a new life together with the company of the “vacinada” Mirren, who speaks Italian and proudly shows her arm emphasize the importance of vaccination for the safety and health of all of us.
The video is warm, funny, with a truly extraordinary complicity between Zalone and Mirren. It is not the first time, after all, that the British actress, winner of an Oscar and three Golden Globes, four BAFTAs, five Screen Actors Guild Awards, four Emmy Awards and a Tony Award, has a predilection for Checco Zalone, Luca Medici. , the King Midas of the Italian box office, capable of making the audiovisual sector economy spin with a video lasting a few seconds: «How can you not love Italy? I would like to work in any film set in Puglia. I love Checco Zalone. I have a house in Salento and I lead a normal life. I take part in village festivals, go shopping and do gardening »said the actress during the last edition of the Berlin Film Festival and it seems that Zalone did not miss the opportunity.
