Woman Thinks No One Is Watching, and She Boogies Down at the Bus Stop
Back in 2013, someone captures the most fun video ever. It was April and kinda chilly outside in Eastleigh, an English town. Meanwhile, 35-year-old Ellie Cole was waiting for the bus. She thought no one was watching, and she decided to get her dance on. Maybe she was trying to move so she could warm up, or maybe she was just feeling the beat, but whatever the case, someone was filming her and it changed her life forever. She had no clue that she was being filmed and certainly had no expectation that the video would be uploaded to the internet and viewed by millions of people.
However, if you’re going to dance publicly, you may as well dance like no one is watching, and that’s exactly what Ellie did. As things happened, her little dance at the bus stop resulted in her getting some unique opportunities. She said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that she’s just an average “everyday” person who just loves to dance at bus stops. Even still, she can scarcely believe what happened with the video. The woman who filmed the viral video was Jane Rowland, who was sitting across the street at a cafe. Jane cleverly added the rock group ABBA’s hit song “Dancing Queen” to the video.
She ended up getting millions of YouTube views on her channel and ended up dealing with copyright infringement problems, so she took it down and uploaded it again, probably without the music. However, the song that Ellie was actually listening to was “Knock Down” by Alesha Dixon. Sure enough, it got her moving and she danced like there was no tomorrow. She said that she wears her earbuds every day, and yes, she still dances every chance she gets. Rowland said that it inspired her and her friends and they were always cheered up by watching the video.
The two women had the chance to meet and even appeared on The Today Show together. Watch this fun video.
