Surrey's Biggest Fan Releases New Video

There's no mistaking that porkpie hat and those distinctive dance moves.

There's no mistaking that porkpie hat and those distinctive dance moves: Surrey's biggest booster is back with a new irresistibly low-tech music video.

Bus driver Amrit Bains wrote "Super Sweet City" last summer as an ode to his beloved, adopted city, earning him the title of Surrey Superfan. His new production, "A New Attitude," could also win him "Most Positive Person On Earth."

The video starts with Bains asking a goddess: "What is the thing that can make me feel good about this world? What is the thing that will make me love this whole world?"

She hands him a fortune cookie, which Bains opens to reveal the answer: "Attitude."

Cue music. And green screens. And sweet moves like this:

Bains' new video coincides with new accolades for the much-maligned Surrey.

A New York-based think tank named the city one of the world's top seven "intelligent communities" earlier this month.

"Surrey is taking a courageous and comprehensive approach to changing not only its legacy of crime but of income inequality and local opportunity," Robert Bell, co-founder of the Intelligent Community Forum wrote in a blog for The Huffington Post B.C.

Or as Bains puts it in his new song, "My whole world just changed / When my thoughts are rearranged."

A new attitude, indeed.
