YouTube sensation – and bus driver – Amrit Bains has released a green screen-y ode to his favourite metro

YouTube star Amrit Bains toasts Surrey in ‘Super Sweet City’

Bains uses the SkyTrain, Central City, and Holland Park as his green screen in an ode to the musical performer's favourite city.



It’s got parks, the SkyTrain, cheerleaders, the charm of a Blair Witch Project-size budget, and the heavy use of a green screen.

It’s called “Super Sweet City” and it’s Amrit Bains’s tribute to his favourite city – Surrey, B.C.

“I go walking on street,” the lyrics go. “So many friendly people meet. Oh I go walking on street. So many friendly people meet. I got swept off my feet. Only thing now, I repeat, here I wanna live my life.”

Bains is (reportedly) a bus driver in the city. His Surrey song has close to 4,000 views.

“I lived in many cities. I was born in India in small village. I lived in Vancouver, Burnaby,” he told the Huffington Post B.C. in an interview. “I enjoy every city, every town, but when it came to Surrey, I really naturally fell in love with it,” Bains explained. “I meet new people all the time. It’s like a festival happening every day. It’s a big, developed city, at the same time it’s like a laid-back village.”

The performer’s YouTube channel reveals a number of other musical ballads, from “Sweet Touch of Love” (for his 29th wedding anniversary) to “Everybody Rocks” – which comes with a slogan “Music is the only true universal language… everyone knows how to speak and everyone understands.”
