The Most Arresting Performance of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ You Will Ever See, From the Back of a Cop Car


Move over, Adam Lambert! Our choice for Queen‘s new lead singer is here in the form of an (allegedly) intoxicated man arrested somewhere in Canada, who responds by singing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ — every bit of it — in the back of a police car.

As reported by Spinner, the detainee first tries to wrangle his way out of trouble by invoking some magical “brotherhood of men on the planet Earth” get-out-of-jail-free card, and gosh, do the Royal Canadian Mounted Police up front probably wish they had taken him up on that deal.

But they declined, the fools, and instead were subjected to a very loud, passionate and surprisingly complete rendition of the legendary track from 1975′s ‘A Night at the Opera.’ Our bearded friend even adds some percussion near the end, just in case his captors’ headaches hadn’t reached a critical point yet.

Someday college essays will be composed comparing and contrasting the vast differences in tone, mood and setting between this grainy, desperate black and white cry for understanding, and the world’s previously most famous ‘Rhapsody’ in a car video, the euphoric big-budget celebration of life we know as the opening scene from ‘Wayne’s World.’ Party on, Garth!
