Honestly, we’re a little shocked it took this long, but finally there’s a lovingly crafted Star Wars-themed parody of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and it’s amazing.
Produced by the students and faculty of the digital video program at University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Ariz., it’s the best mashup of Queen and George Lucas we’ve ever seen. (Admittedly, it wasn’t a crowded field.)
The clip features a dizzying array of characters portrayed by the Arizona cosplayer community, and the lyrics are chock-full of clever, properly thorough Star Wars references. (The “Scaramouche” part of the original song becomes “Master Yoda, Master Yoda, will you raise up my X-Wing?”) Oh, and Darth Vader Force-plays a solo on a floating guitar at one point. But we might be most impressed by the fact that every vocal in the song is performed by one dude: Adam Newton, who handles the demanding track with surprising aplomb.
Enjoy, and remember, as Yoda says at the end of the video: “Matters, nothing really / See, anyone can.”
