Lincoln bus driver entertains people during lockdown with amusing TikTok videos

He wanted to cheer people up during lockdown

A Lincoln bus driver is entertaining people during the coronavirus lockdown with his quirky and amusing videos on TikTok.

Adam Wales, 41, is employed by Stagecoach and is still working hard to provide a key service during lockdown, but in his spare time he enjoys lifting peoples’ spirits on the social media video app which he started using on April 30.

He told The Lincolnite: “I see things posted on Facebook by people who are struggling mentally, physically, financially and social with the situation and I wanted to help lift their spirits.

“I have two sons, aged 17 and 12, who both use the TikTok app and, after quizzing them briefly about it, I investigated it for myself.

“I have had some great feedback from the videos, both written and verbally, and the more I do, the more I’m inspired to produce. I’m no expert though and still need to explore the ‘special effects’ of the app in more detail.

“Simplicity is key and I believe the simple but funny ones are the most effective. I flick through the ones that other people have done and if they make me laugh I do them with my own slant.”
