Ever Wondered What Bohemian Rhapsody Would Sound Like If It Were Re-Written Using Footballers Names? (Video)

Chances are you’re probably already fairly well acquainted with Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen’s 1975 genre-splicing gibberish rock classic.

However, thanks to The Exploding Heads, we now know that Bo-Rhap (as true fans refer to it) can be improved – specifically by subbing out the original lyrics and replacing them with phonetically similar footballers’ names.

It’s actually really rather good…

Impeccably prepared and executed, we’re sure you’ll agree – most impressive deployment of Adnan Januzaj since his senior debut.

In fact, it’s second only to ‘Mertesacker Emptiness‘ in our humble estimation.

    It’s good. But it’s not quite as good as the one you ‘borrowed’ it from that my mate Paddy and I did in about 2003. Easy to steal the idea … not so easy to steal the execution.
