Throughout the pandemic, Brian May has been cheering fans up with all sort of fun and positive messages and videos on his Instagram. And now the 73-year-old’s latest post sees a hilarious parody of Sir Winston Churchill singing some Freddie Mercury Queen hits. May captioned it: “A time for heroes ! Bri.”
The new video was created by comedian Alasdair Beckett-King, whose original video you can view below.
In the footage, Churchill sings the lyrics of We Are The Champions, Bicycle Race and Flash.
Freddie famously wrote the first two tracks while Brian penned Flash as the theme song for the 1980 movie Flash Gordon.
The Queen version is sung as a duet between Freddie and Brian while drummer Roger Taylor added high harmonies.
Kicking off on Friday, Queen The Greatest will present the band’s history in chronological order.
According to the series’ synopsis: “[It] will take you from Queen’s earliest shows at London’s Rainbow and Odeon through vast arenas across the entire world on a journey culminating with the band’s latest record-setting achievements with Adam Lambert.
“Along with spectacular concert footage, sound checks, backstage and rare after-show access we get to explore the stories behind the songs, hits and album tracks, drawn from the extensive footage that exists in the official archive while also uncovering and sharing rare and previously unseen gems.
“Some of these moments will be familiar, others rare or forgotten, some record-breaking milestones, others quirky and unusual but all of which remind us of the impact Queen has maintained for five decades and continues through to today.”
