It’s typical.  You wait forever for a bus to come along, and then they always seem to show up right when you don’t need them any more.  The creator of this video, which was supposed to be of the demolition of a high rise block of flats a few days ago in Glasgow, Scotland, certainly didn’t need this bus coming along to block his shot.

You have to feel for the guy.  You setup in a prime spot, you’re told that traffic will be temporarily halted shortly before the blast until it’s over, and then this happens.

But, the force is strong with schadenfreude, and I would imagine this video wouldn’t have gotten nearly anywhere near as many views without it.

Fortunately for us, SWNS TV managed to capture the demolition from a different angle, in a cordoned off car park, free from bus interaction.

Thanks for the heads up Mel!

    Simmilarity with 9/11 is striking.
