I very much doubt that this is real. Lightning super-heats the air molecules around it and causes a rapid expansion of the air near by. This creates a shockwave that we hear and feel as thunder. Neither the plants nor the camera shakes at all when the lightning hits. So its seems unlikely that this is real.

I wouldn't be so sure. The vacuum created be lighting is rather small and does not need to be huge to create a loud clap. Not nearly big enough to create a 'thunderous' shockwave that would rustle leaves like an explosion. But I'm just conjecturing here have a thumb anyway for being inquisitive.

You'd think that the lightning would hit the taller trees, or the metal bus wich lightning is generally attracted to, instead of the person. I feel this is like the drunk mall Santa getting 'shot' gif.

The bus is on rubber tires

I don't think the lightning gives a flying **** what's under the bus, only that it's a giant hunk of highly conductive metal.

It's grounded, sure, but that doesn't make it any less likely of a target.

Which attracts and absorbs lightning. Does not mean it necessarily deflects it. Cars can still be hit by lightning, it just doesn't do much damage since the rubber acts as a lightning rod.
