A drunk man from Canada became an instant Internet sensation last week after video footage of him singing the popular Queen song “Bohemian Rhapsody” while in the back of a police car went viral on YouTube.
After getting pulled over last November in Edson, Alberta (in Canada), 29-year-old Robert Wilkinson, who was clealry drunk, was placed in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser, where he launched into an acapella rendition of the Queen classic word-for-word with ZERO mistakes.
The song clocks in at around six minutes, and has several pitch/tone changes, but Wilkinson keeps up with it all, enthusiastically air-guitaring, air-drumming, and pounding on the window.
Before launching into the tune, Wilkinson, who wasn’t handcuffed, tried to explain to the RMCP officer that he wasn’t intoxicated, and that he should bet let go.
“I have done nothing wrong — even the situation where you grabbed me, has nothing to do with having been sort-of intoxicated … as you proclaim!” the drunken bearded man slurs in the beginning of the video. “What it has to do with is brotherhood of man on the planet Earth!”
Wilkinson also reportedly told the cop: “You’re actually an ignorant fucking cunt. So fuck you buddy.”
According to The Smoking Gun, Robert Wilkinson has decided to defend himself against the DUI charges brought against him, and to assist him with his “case,” the police gave him the video footage, which he uploaded himself to YouTube to impress his friends.
In a TSG interview, Wilkinson said that he had uploaded the tape earlier this month for the amusement of friends. Wilkinson, who was unaware that the police video (see below) had gone viral, said that he is a karaoke singer who has performed all 113 Beatles songs available on karaoke machines. Asked how he was able to recall almost all the “Bohemian Rhapsody” lyrics, Wilkinson sought to display his memory by rattling off a long string of digits in Pi.
