Singing, dancing Italian priest becomes Youtube star

Calls for father Maggioni as pope among comments by viewers

Singing, dancing Italian priest becomes Youtube star

Milan, July 18 - A dancing, singing priest whose performance was uploaded onto Youtube has garnered an audience of almost one million viewers and become one of the channel's most watched videos this week. Father Bruno Maggioni from the town of Limbiate near Milan was filmed during a marriage ceremony singing a 1980s hit by the Italian group Ricchi e Poveri called 'Mamma Maria', which he dedicated to the wedding couple. The video shows the enthusiastic and bespectacled priest hit the play button on a stereo placed on the altar then run in front of the crowd singing, clapping and bouncing to the beat. Dubbed the "craziest priest in Italy," some comments on Youtube have called for the father to be elected pope while others have booed his unorthodox display.
