You will all have seen it – the video of the old lady dressed in a hot pink coat abandoning her shopper to boogie down with the gold-lame catsuit clad busker to Twist and Shout outside Boots in North Street.
Now, the woman behind the global viral video, which has shown the world the unique charms of Brighton, is on a mission to find the leading lady of her surprise smash hit.
Ezda Beevers was out and about in the city centre on Monday when she spotted the scene which has now thrilled people across the world.
She said: “The old lady in the pink coat is the total star of the show. She’s why I stopped. I saw her getting into it, and I thought I’ve got to video that.
She was amazing, and that’s what made the video. She was properly going for it, but when she walked off, she was really struggling.
“I saw her about ten minutes later in Marks and Spencer and she was walking really slowly – she must be really old, she could hardly move.
“Now, I would love to find her, that’s what I want to do. I’ve hooked up with Pablo, the dancer, and we want to say thank you.
“It just went a bit bonkers. It went everywhere – I’ve been getting messages from journalists in Taiwan, Mexico. It’s just quite weird, because I jut made a video and it went a bit crazy. It was just a really good moment.
“I also love the man with the bag with a chick
on it, he’s just really spontaneous.
“What I like about the video is that fact it sums Brighton up – all different sorts of people having a good time. It was just a couple of normal people joining in.”
If you are the pink coat lady, or you know who she is, please contact Ezda via her Facebook page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
