Stuck in Malta traffic, Tom Hanks takes to Twitter

The Hollywood actor captured a part of his ‘morning commute’ on video.

Hollywood actor Tom Hanks posted a second video of his experiences on Malta's roads to micro-blogging site Twitter yesterday.

The 31-second clip shows Hanks and his driver stuck in traffic, facing a 118 Arriva bus just as they're about to enter a tunnel, which judging by the 118 bus route, is most probably the one leading from Kirkop to Luqa airport.

The video ends with Hanks chanting in relief as traffic clears up and the car passes through the tunnel into the early morning.

'My early morning commute. Maybe I should get a bike. Hanx', Hanks wrote in the video's tagline.

This is not the first time that Hanks - who is currently shooting the historical thriller Captain Philips in Malta - posted an amateur video of his Malta experiences.

On April 24, he caught sight of a van carrying a religious statue. What is a normal sight for Maltese residents amused the American star, who wrote: 'Can I join this car pool?'

Hanks and his driver are obviously not facing a 118 bus but tailing it.

I'm surprised how a hollywood star and a movie director doesn't know that holding his widescreen camcorder in that position will not result in a recording with the correct aspect ratio, as can be seen in the clips he is publishing.... So, only in hollywood??

May I point out that this is not a 31 minute clip as stated in the write up, which makes one think that Hanks spent 31minutes behind the 118 bus!!! It is only 31secs so what is the fuss really???
