Scotland’s Aberdeenshire coastline is home to some of Europe’s last remaining wilderness areas of shifting sand dunes. Dubbed "the Amazon Rainforest of Europe," by a leading scientist from the University of Glasgow, the irreplaceable land holds Britain’s top conservation ranking.
So when billionaire property developer Donald Trump expressed an interest to build a $1.2 billion golf resort on the precious coastline eight years ago, outraged local residents and environmentalists objected to the move and refused to sell their homes. Ignored by the Scottish government, the community has protested ever since.
Now, the Scottish residents have opted for a new tactic to outmaneuver the billionaire. With Queen's permission, according to the Scotsman, they've created a satirical musical spoof of Donald Trump -- as a 3 ft puppet -- singing "Bohemian Rhapsody."
The rewritten version of the 1975 smash hit tells the tale of the local community's struggle with the Trump empire since the development began.
Created and produced by freelance writer Hazel Cameron, the video also features Michael Forbes, a local resident who claims to have endured endless bullying from Trump over the refusal to sell his land.
In January, reports emerged that Trump suspended construction on the entire golf course project, claiming a wind turbine project would spoil the view from his property. Threatening to pull the plug on the resort if he doesn't get his way, the Scottish government has yet to make a decision.
This isn't the first time Donald Trump has been in the spotlight for the golf course. Last year, filmmaker Anthony Baxter created a compelling documentary called "You've Been Trumped," which follows Trump's empire and the story behind the golf resort project.
