Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Gets a ‘Star Wars’-Themed Parody
Barely a week goes by these days without someone uploading their own version of Queen‘s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ As always, we’re right on the case. Here’s the most recent viral video, but with new words based on the ‘Star Wars’ series.
“A long time ago in a karaoke bar far, far away,” the video begins. From there it mimics scenes from the movies as well as Queen’s famous “four faces” video for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’
Click the “cc” on the video above to activate the captions, which reveal the song’s lyrics, such as “Jabba / Just captured Han / Took him down without a fight / Now he’s frozen Carbonite.” Even Yoda makes an appearance at the end, singing the last lines with his trademark backward grammar.
The video is a project by students and faculty of the Digital Video Program and the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Ariz. The lyrics were written by Stephen Panagiotis, Jamall Richards and Paul DeNigris. Impressively, all the vocals were sung by Adam Newton.
