A man who wound up in the back of a police car after apparent public inebriation has become an Internet star for his woozy rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
In the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police squad car and captured on camera, the bearded character flails about holding his glasses while turning in a word-for-word version of the lengthy 1975 Queen anthem. Halfway through, the car stops -- and the singer bursts into the "Galileo, Galileo" section. Later, during the guitar solo, an officer tells him to "calm down." "I can't," he says.
In less amusing related news, Queen's Sonisphere Festival performance with Adam Lambert has been canceled, along with the rest of the UK festival. "It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012," the fest's website stated on Thursday.
The musicians have yet to announce if they'll team up for a replacement date. Sonisphere was the site of the band's final performance with late frontman Freddie Mercury.
