The trick to landing a large plane in a crosswind is to keep the wings level and crab into the wind. Then at the last possible moment, you kick the rudder to straighten it out relative to the runway and set it down firmly. He straightened it out too early, i.e., he was too high above the runway, and he was too long on his approach to give it another try. He had no choice but to go around and try it again.

Why would anyone give this comment down votes?
Not been a pilot, I don't think it helps that the runway looks like a roller coaster either.

I think the crosswind picked up on him right before landing, as he had drifted too far right, he then over corrected to get left and straighten out early otherwise he would have been too far left. at which point he was too long on the approach. All in all a crappy day to be landing.
