Queen guitarist Brian May allows Trump campaigners to use Bohemian Rhapsody in spoof video
QUEEN guitarist Brian May has given his permission to anti Donald Trump protesters for Queen track Bohemian Rhapsody to be used in a spoof campaign video.
The video was made by the Tripping up Trump campaigners who wanted to express their anger at Trump’s controversial golf resort development on the Aberdeenshire coast.
The film features a Spitting Image-style Donald Trump pupper singing a parody of the Queen hit and features lines such as “ “I’m just a rich kid, I’m no nonentity.”
May, who gave permission for the song to be used within four hours of being asked, said he wanted to show his “disgust” at Trump’s plans for the Menie estate.
The musician told the campaigners: “I will do what I can to bring it a little more out in the open. I’m happy to secure you permission to try this yourself.”
The seven-minute-long video took it’s creators 18 months to complete, from start to finish.
