I think it's something to do with Merseytravel. They've put up posters advertising it, anyway, and it's on their YouTube channel.
So he gets a train, and he fancies the girl. And he gets the train again, and he still fancies her. And then gets up late so he runs over the bridge and misses the girl he fancies. And his train. The next day he's on time, but she's not there.
Then he decides to take a bus instead. Or something? And then gets up earlier, and sits next to her, even though the entire bus is empty, and next thing she's resting her head on his shoulder. While there's some French music playing.
I don't understand. It's like watching Mulholland Drive or something.
I get the "boy fancies girl and decides to stalk her" part. Are we meant to sympathise? Surely she changed to a bus because of that weird bloke on the platform who kept staring at her?
Are we meant to find it romantic? If someone came and sat next to me on an empty bus I'd assume he was a pervert and/or mental. She seems to love it though. It's not exactly Sleepless in Seattle*, is it? More like the first five minutes of Saw. I bet he ties her up in his shed and abuses her with garden implements.
I just don't understand.
Maybe the message is "if you have a season ticket, all sorts of exciting things can happen to you!". You can have toast! You can sit in the pissing rain with pensioners! Though there isn't a single shot of a season ticket in the whole thing, so I might be wrong about that.
I like its extremely accurate portrayal of bus drivers as people who will ignore a man running behind banging on the glass, trying to board. The woman is working some fierce scarves. Cressington is a very pretty station.
It's just... odd.
I don't understand.
*I love Sleepless in Seattle, by the way. It's one of the few films to make me cry (I am essentially dead inside). It's the bit where Tom Hanks says "we have to go," then turns to Meg Ryan and says, "Shall we?". She's become part of his "we". Sob.
