This is indeed recorded in the Central Train Station of Antwerp (voted for the 4th most beautiful of the world by newsweek).
It's a promotion campaign for a new tv show 'In search for Maria'. Where they search for the starring role (Maria von Trapp) in the musical The Sound of Music.
Indeed. It makes me smile, even if it is a complete rip-off of the T-mobile advert.

If you want to live in a world where people burst into song and dance, then make it happen.
When I was studying at Julliard (the paleolithic period) we would often do just that around the fountain of Lincoln Centre. I still remember rushing out of class at SAB onto the sqaure and performing the opening ballet from West Side Story.
Ah youth! It is not always wasted on the young.
