Yeah... Glasgow is a large and modern city, and Airdrie is a grey industrial town that's nowhere near the sea. I'm skeptical as to whether a single one of those clips at the beginning is actually Scotland, it looks like something from a fantasy TV show or somewhere way out in the islands.

So happy he’s going places, he deserves it and sea shanties are awesome! Pleased he mentioned a brief history of sea shanties and their origins as it will encourage others to learn about them instead of calling them “tik tok songs” as some do. Although I’m sure it’s innocently meant, it makes my blood boil just a tad
