I guess there is a brand, like Leyland or few others that made such busses

No, it's a Daimler Fleetline, new to Bournemouth Corporation (fleet number 186) on the South Coast of England, but owned from 1997 by Coach Engineering of Burbank, California

How did this British bus end up in the (pardon my language) asscrack of nowhere in the US?

There's a market for British double deckers, often described as "London" buses even if they are not, to be used for guided tours or as static bars and cafes or as tourist attractions in themselves.

To get a sense of the scale of it look at the "British buses abroad" albums in https://www.flickr.com/photos/buses-international/albums

Think about from the bus's point of view. You've grown up in Bournemouth which is basically a retirement resort for old folk in bungalows, plus gets swamped by holidaymakers in the summer. There's only so much a bus can take of piers, seaside donkeys, kids covered in sand with melting ice-creams, and stale fish and chip papers without going mad. So the bus dreams of escaping to go and see the world, and one day it manages to slip away without raising the alarm, and its adventures eventually reach America where it lives happily ever after as a film star.
