Maybe he’s just a poor boy and needs no sympathy. Well, easy come, easy go.
Is he a drunk guy? Does he need some sympathy? Is this the real life or is it just fantasy?
Those are questions we could ask of 29-year-old Robert Wilkinson, who’s accused of impaired driving and refusing to take a breathalyzer.
The evidence disclosure package given to the Alberta man when he decided to defend himself in court contained an amazing video from the back of a police car the night he was arrested last November.
Wilkinson uploaded the video of his complete rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” to YouTube and it’s been viewed almost a million times in just two days.
His performance in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) cruiser is terrific. It includes headbanging and air drumming. Wilkinson makes sure to sing the instrumental parts of the song as well. His rendition of the Queen classic ends on a most wonderful pun.
The video has proven to be wildly popular, with “Bohemian Rhapsody” trending on Twitter in the U.S. Friday morning. It also has been making the rounds on Facebook.
Wilkinson’s case is scheduled to go to court in November. Perhaps he’ll use the video to spare him his life from the RCMP.
