Footage of Celine Dion on Edinburgh bus leaves residents amazed

Footage of Celine Dion in a Scots city filming a music video in the 80s has resurfaced leaving locals in amazement.

The Canadian superstar's song Lolita came out in October 1987 and featured a music video filmed in Edinburgh with one feature which has left locals baffled.

One resident, Calum, posted a clip to TikTok informing his followers of the incredible discovery after the music video resurfaced, reports Edinburgh Live.

While he said he "understands" choosing the city as a filming location, he was a bit more perplexed about the use of the capital's local buses. One follower commented: "Maybe the director just rates buses?"

Calum, who shared a clip from the music video on his TikTok account, said: "Did you know that in the 1980s in Edinburgh, Celine Dion actually filmed a music video?

"Weirdly enough, most of it appears to take place on a Lothian Bus. I know that sounds like a lie, but it's not. I can understand someone using Edinburgh as a location, it makes sense. It's a lovely-looking place.

"The Lothian Bus part, I understand less well."

The music video starts off with some shots around the city, before showing Celine walking outside Waverley and jumping on one of the buses. As Calum rightly points out, she doesn't appear to pay the driver - shocking.

He continued: "There's lots of shots of buses.

"Princes Street somehow looks so much greener than it does now. She doesn't pay! That explains why our bus fares cost so much now.

"The rest of the video is kind of her walking around the same sort of locations. You see her walking across the road one way at Princes Street and then it looks like she's heading off to the St James Centre.

"Later on it looks like she's really upset and bothered, and runs back across the same street. I'm assuming at that point she probably saw the 1970s style monstrosity of a building that was round the corner at that point."

Followers were quick to comment with surprise at Lothian Buses making such a feature in Celine's video. One said: "The cars driving on Princes Street are throwing me off!"

Another added: "I actually love this! So bloody random."

A third commented: "She knew Edinburgh could handle her serve."

Another posted: "Maybe the director just rates buses?"
