This American-Italian couple is using their social media platform to show people how culturally different their respective countries are. Jessi and Alessio, who have a joint TikTok channel called @thepasinis, had posted a series of videos documenting the difference in the daily habits of Americans and Europeans. They showed the disparities in everything, from candy brands to their breads. In one such video, they started by showing what sort of bread they use.

In the 18-second video, Alessio was seen holding freshly baked bread and Jessi had a packet of bread with the brand name being "Baby Bunny." In the next clip, Jessi was driving the car, and the text overlay read, "Drives everywhere." The husband was seen walking and the text overlay read, "Walks everywhere." They were implying that Americans like to take their cars everywhere meanwhile, Europeans prefer to walk.

After this, the woman looked into the camera and said, "No! You look great! Really!" The text overlay read, "American - always polite." Alessio on the other hand said, "You looking really fat. Wow!" and the text read, "European - blunt AF." In another comparison video, the man was seen eating a spoonful from a jar of Nutella while the wife was eating from Skippy-brand peanut butter. In the next frame, Jessi walked into the house without removing her shoes while Alessio removed his shoes and closed the door after entering the house. They were implying that Europeans prefer to keep their shoes outside unlike Americans. After this, they acted like they were arguing about the decimal placement in numbers.

The Europeans write one-thousand euros and zero cents as 1.000,00 € while in America they write it as $1,0000.00. In another video from their series, they showed the difference in how Americans and Europeans drink coffee. While the husband had a small cup of coffee which he drank in seconds, the wife had a big mug of coffee which she slowly drank. Next, Jessi was seen putting her clothes in a dryer to dry them but Alessio hung them on a wire for the same reason. Lastly, the Italian husband was pretending to eat his food slowly using a knife and a fork and Jessi was using the knife to cut her food but was otherwise just using the fork to eat her food.

In an 18-second video, they showed the difference between restaurant water that gets served in America and Europe. While in Europe, they give a sealed water bottle to the customers, the Americans are given tap water in a glass. Next, they revealed how patients are treated in hospitals in both countries. In America, the patient was called in an hour meanwhile in Europe they joked about it taking a month. People in the comments found the differences relatable.

@imnickjohson commented, "All I know is Peanut butter > Nutella every day of the week." @Mulysah86 wrote, "My partner is from England and I’m from Texas, he found the way I eat hilarious when we started dating." @heloiseconroy said, "Oh no! The knife and fork thing would drive me crazy. I’m definitely European." @nkrueger1 shared, "So true I am German and we don’t sugar coat and yes we walked or used bicycles everywhere."
