"Oh my God!": Vancouver bus driver surprises passenger with classic Indian birthday song (VIDEO)
A Vancouver bus passenger got the treat of a lifetime when a bus driver broke into a classic Hindi birthday song just for her.
We connected with the boyfriend of the lucky birthday girl, Sushsen Sharma, who shared a video of the surprise on Twitter and told us that the performance of this classic Hindi birthday song for his partner was a “spontaneous surprise” from the bus driver.
He told us that the talented and musical Vancouver bus driver’s name is Mohammed.

You can hear Sharma’s surprise in the video, as it starts with him exclaiming, “Oh my God!”
Mohammed looks like a professional entertainer, using engaging hand gestures playing to the birthday girl and the camera.
Mohammed caught wind of a special occasion after seeing the couple with the box of traditional Indian sweets, including some laddu, a popular Indian treat. The birthday girl looks delighted, laughing and dancing to the music.
Mohammed gifts himself a well-deserved laddu at the end of the video for the magical performance, suggesting this was the end of his day, and what a way to end it.
TransLink also gave the driver kudos on Twitter.
