"Bohemian Rhapsody" is one of those songs that's impossible not to sing along to. No matter the location, once somebody belts out "Is this the real life..." a phenomenon occurs in which all Queen fans (and let's face it, who isn't one) within 100 yards must join in.
Which may have been what this detained, intoxicated Canadian man had in mind when lamenting his troubles through the operatic lyrics of Freddie Mercury while in the back of a police cruiser. He attempted to talk the cops out of letting him go by reason of "brotherhood of man on the planet earth." Apparently the Mounties were not big "How to Succeed in Business" fans, so instead he offered the siren call of Queen's magnum opus, as thousands of unfairly imprisoned men have done before him.
Even though he knows all the words and finishes the song, the police did not let him go. No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Thanks to our friends at Spinner for finding this one.
