Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a classic. Rarely do you come across someone who doesn’t love that song (and if you do… run). Now, Corridor Digital has made a literal translation of the song and its brilliant!
YouTube collective Corridor Digital have turned the song into a crime drama that starts with a murder, continues with an emotional family confrontation, and climaxes with a stand-off with the police.
It clocks in at 3:55, which is two minutes shorter than the original version, because it doesn’t contain the “So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye” section of the song. Director Nico says this was because “the lyrics become a lot less film friendly from there. Up to that point everything reads like an opera or play, but then it becomes a bit too song-like to really keep it up.”
