Heartwarming Moment Passengers Break out Into Impromptu Dance as Busker Performs
The London tube sees thousands of passengers coming in and out at all hours of the day. Usually, people keep to themselves or stick to their phones like glue while traveling, to prevent any form of social interaction from happening. I have to admit, before my morning coffee, I can't mentally comprehend anything. But that's why this story is so uplifting... Tube travelers came together to take part in an impromptu underground rave. Keep scrolling to watch the heartwarming video...
Leicester Square is an underground station in the West End of London.
It used to be a popular place for dueling up until the end of the 17th century.
It's pronounced Lester Square.
Londontopia states: “In 1699, Richard Coote, the First Earl of Bellomont, killed a man a duel allegedly over the affections of a woman. He later became the colonial governor of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York.”
Famous statues can be found around the square.
Sir Isaac Newton, Charlie Chaplin, and William Shakespeare are all the statues that can be spotted.
The Civitas London.
This was one of the earliest maps of the area dating back to the 1500s, it shows that the square used to be used by women drying out their clothes on the grass while cows grazed. How times have changed.
You can actually walk faster on foot...
The tube route from Leicester Square to Covent Garden is the most popular route taken by tourists, but it’s actually faster to walk.
Passengers have come together for the best reason.
The video shows the moment everyone broke out into song and dance.
The busker was happily surprised.
The footage shows the large group forming a conga line in the underground
It was far from normal.

The busker's name is Wilfy Williams.

Wes Streeting, London MP also commented: “The horror with which I greeted this, admittedly wholesome and joyful content, has made me realize the extent to which I have been institutionalized as a lifelong Londoner.”
