Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody Queen song is one of the most successful and recognisable tracks in the history of rock. Famously, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey performed a carpool karaoke of the song in 1992’s Wayne’s World. The comedy also starred Rob Lowe as Benjamin Kane, a sleazy TV producer.

And now Lowe has shared a hilarious video of himself stuck in traffic and lip-syncing to Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

The 57-year-old wrote on Instagram next to the footage: “When in traffic, sometimes you just have to do it. #bohemianrhapsody.”

Lowe remembers how neither Myers or Carvey had been in a movie before, with Wayne’s World having started out as an SNL sketch.

However, The West Wing star says he’ll never forget the audience reaction to their characters belting out Queen in the car.

Speaking with Vanity Fair in 2019, Lowe said: “I sat in a screening and Bohemian Rhapsody came on.

“And when they started moving their heads like this [starts head banging], the place…went…ballistic, like I’ve never seen before.

“I remember looking at Mike and going, ‘Holy sh**!’, and literally the rest was history.”

Of course, Myers would go on to play the record producer who didn’t believe in Bohemian Rhapsody in the Freddie Mercury biopic of the same name.

Brian said: “I can go back a bit further because, I think, you Mike did get me the tape and I took it round to Freddie not long before he went and showed it to him.

“You know, you said you wanted to have the approval. He loved it. He laughed and laughed.

“He was very weak, but he just smiled and laughed and said, ‘Yeah, how wonderful is that?’”

The Queen guitarist also shared how he’s sure Freddie didn’t just enjoy the comedy and tribute to the band, but also knew it was a kind of rebirth for them in the USA.

Brian continued: “[Freddie] had been known to say, ‘Look, you know, I suppose I have to die before we get America back.”

Queen had suffered a dip in popularity across the pond after backlash to the band being dressed in drag for their 1984 I Want To Break Free video.

The 73-year-old added: “But you guys did it. You got us back to a new American public. And Freddie was very aware of that.

“You guys should know that. He went to the next place knowing what had happened and enjoying it.”
