Bus Driver Stunned After Transformation Makes Him Look 'Seven Years Younger'
| Last updated
A bus driver has amazed TikTok users after a video showed his incredible transformation to look seven years younger. Watch below:
Adam is already somewhat famous on the platform himself. As @londonbusdriver he'll often give people directions around the UK capital, or offer tourists suggestions for places to go on their visit. However, this latest clip hasn't just upped his profile, it's also turned back the clock.
The clip, posted by Novo Cabelo Hair, initially shows Adam in his bus driving gear. Although blessed with a luxurious beard, he does have a bit of a bald spot, which Novo Cabelo are keen to fix.
The voiceover on the TikTok video begins: "This is Adam, you'll know him as London Bus Driver. We wanted to put hair systems to the test to see if we could make him look younger.
"So we hit the streets to ask a number of people how old they thought he looked. The average age came out at 37."
The trouble is, Adam's actually only 29. Ouch.
Armed with that knowledge, though, Novo Cabelo get to work and even blindfold the bus driver so they can get a genuine reaction from him when he sees his changed appearance - and wow does it change.
You get a sense of the change through the video, as they cut and trim his hair, add the hair system (essentially a custom-made toupee) and lo and behold, transform him in a slick-looking go-getter.
Adam is of course stunned. "Oh my god!" he exclaims as he puts his hands to his mouth.
The driver is lost for the words and even gets brought to tears before managing to compose himself and say: "That is unreal."
He leaves the salon and once again the public are asked how old they think he is now. This time the answer comes back as 30.
The video has been watched over 1.4 million times and received thousands of comments - including from Adam himself.
"The guy crying is me," he wrote. "It was overwhelming not recognising myself in the mirror and also not feeling down about by lack of hair."
Novo Cabelo replied: "You wear it well... and 7 years younger mate!!!"
Adam found himself a supportive audience, with one writing: "We really do underestimate the impact baldness has on blokes..."
Another wrote: "What a transformation! He looks so much younger, he is very handsome."
A third added: "Oh my goodness this made me cry too!! His overwhelmed reaction is everything. He looks fantastic!"
He really does, and although this sort of hair replacement system won't necessarily come cheap, it's gratifying to see the almost instant impact it had on Adam's self-confidence and happiness.
