SINGAPORE: In a random street interview for a TikTok user’s channel, a bus enthusiast got downright honest about his thoughts on the Singaporean bus community and why it is “toxic.”
TikTok user @sneakysushii, whose bio reads “I make internet videos” recently uploaded a video of a street interview with a bus enthusiast and a human “motor vehicle encyclopedia,” as the content creator called it. The 43-second clip began with the TikTok user narrating, “I did, however, encounter this one very peculiar man.”
“I have taken almost every bus,” the interviewee started. “Really?” @sneakysushii asked. “Yep,” replied the vehicle fan.
Interview with a Singaporean bus enthusiast.
“Wow…what about trains?” the content creator probed.
“Just took it last week only. The R151…up to now still hunting for it.”
The conversation then segued into a more serious topic, as the interviewer asked, “Why did you say the bus community is like…toxic?”
For the respondent, it was simple. “They like to spew vulgarities and they like to insult people,” he said, going on to share his personal experience. “I’ve seen the worst. Like that guy–instead of queuing, he just wants to do that…” the camera then panned to another individual traveling by public transport.
“Less than 1/12 of them are actually good guys,” the interviewee continued. “Just let him be. Sooner or later, karma will get to him.” He then went on to add, “When I’m being like confronted by rogues, I have to bring out my defensive areas. The very first SMRT model was actually Mercedes Benz 0405.”
The video then zoomed into the content creator’s face, featuring a confused expression, before cutting to another clip of him walking with a voice-over explaining, “And then, I got bored and left.”
Many netizens took to the comments section to join the conversation.
“Bus fans are intelligent,” said one.
“How insightful!” wrote another.
A third shared, “Respect his geekiness about his interest.”
A fourth agreed with the interviewee’s sentiments about the Singaporean bus community, saying, “Wow, John Doe be speaking facts about the bus community.”
Still one or two found the ending of the video amusing.
