The Tik Tok phenomenon and engineering student records himself with his GoPro camera, filming his face from a humorous angle, which has become synonymous with his channel.

A representative at Keighley & Worth Valley Railway said: “It’s great that such international high profile brands as Gucci & The North Face choose to use heritage locations like the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway to create adverts, it’s a perfect opportunity to promote the heritage.

“The advert showcased Oakworth Station, the countryside, rolling stock and one of the locomotives, all of which are in regular use. Francis Bourgeois was the perfect talent to feature in the advert, the sheer light-hearted joy you see in the advert, is naturally Francis.”

Councillor Mohsin Hussain for Keighley Central (Labour) said: “It’s a great initive to put Keighley’s famous heritage on an advert. This clearly shows the beauty of our town in the district and I think Gucci and North Face for progressing with this.”
