Speaking about bringing the song to life visually, director Gemma Yin says:
"We wanted to make a vibrant video for 'On the Bus' to compliment Ellen's colourful style and personality. She had seen a summery collage animation that she loved so we ran with the idea of shooting her in still photography sequences before deconstructing the imagery to build our own unique world of surreal collage. We meander between recognizable elements from the story of the lyrics and random things from Ellen's imagination in this performance video - it is like a hyper-charged daydream!"
"The video for 'On The Bus' really captures the feeling of wanting to escape an unrequited love. Perhaps being drunk or daydreaming on the bus. I love the trippy and surreal feeling that Gemma and her team have produced. Working with them was such a great experience."
