Drunk Dude Sings Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody in the Back of the Squad Car

Awesome rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody sung by guy arrested for drunk and disorderly. He can't talk coherently but man can he sing.

3. Well, I wouldn't say that he's giving Chaka Khan a run for her money but he's entertaining.

16. What the camera isn't showing are the cops biting their lips off trying not to laugh

I suppose it would have been in poor form for the cops to have joined in with him.

18. I was thinking that the first time I played it. I'm enough of a troublemaker that if I were one of

those cops, I would have jumped into the song with him. One of the all-time "you're-automatically-forgiven-if-you-belt-this-out-and-really-give-it-your-all" songs. It was awfully tempting not to fall in while just watching the damn thing!

I laughed out loud a whole bunch of times! HIGHLY entertaining! Hey, the Florida cops notwithstanding, I think police officers ought to get a break out there on their beats every so often. Gives 'em something fun and relatively harmless to tell their mates about, back at the precinct station.

20. CNN aired it and reported that the Mounties allowed him to finish the song...

...after they arrived at the station. Pretty cool!

5. Wow, impressive!

Anyone who can sing Queen like that should have all charges dropped. (not really)

in his evident state of advanced blottoness.

13. He mentioned the RCMP

Canadian. Someone else's embarrassment for once.

edited to add: I thought he was David Hasselhoff at first. Some people are epic drunks!

21. Good point. Understandable. But this was a pretty evident lesser threat.

At most this guy would probably only pose a danger to anyone by falling on them or breathed on them hard. Looks like he probably couldn't stay standing up by himself. Ordinarily you're cuffed too, but they evidently determined he was unarmed and not a serious threat. And they got a free concert in the process.

I loved this! PROBABLY because I've just been SO very angry for several months now, because of the various elements of the war on women. Also, the rise and the clout of the fucking teabaggers that's metastasized like some horrible cancer and has led to this active and virulent erosion of civil rights and voting rights and privacy rights and workers rights EVERYWHERE seems to have come to a really disgraceful head and gnaws at me more than ever. I've been more upset and angry and frankly terrified than I've ever been - by how the political landscape has devolved and the increasingly divisive and tyrannical timbre of the public discourse now. I wrote a column about that a few years ago, back when I was doing that full-time. I called it "The Meaning of America" - and its premise was the we're just turning noticeably mean in this country. We've become a lot meaner (and certainly not leaner), mean-spirited, angry, hostile, bitter, divisive, verbally toxic and destructive. It's really awful! I'm gonna be 59 in a few weeks, and I can NEVER remember people being this mean and cruel and nasty!

Shit. So some dumb silly thing like this is perfect to change the subject for a few moments. They don't call it comic relief for nothing.

22. I read somewhere that the guy in the video

uploaded it to youtube himself...

I was impressed... without the music I would probably repeat a verse or something...

24. I'm surprised he's not cuffed

Seems the cops waited for him to finish. They could have done the harmony and stuff.

25. Well

 

He certainly is ... passionate ... about delivering the full rendition of the song.

LMAO.

If this is the worst thing he ever does in his life, he's a better person than most! I'd rather see a drunk person do something silly than a sober person do something violent.

26. I like it! He's probably

pretty darned good when he's sober. Heck, even drunk, he was pretty darned good.
