How to instantly have 2 friends and do cool stuff

[–]LearningLifeAsIGo 182 points183 points  (11 children)

Sheesh. I am out of luck then.

[–]GangstuhShiet420lmao 23 points24 points  (4 children)

I have alot of friends nick came over last night and we played minecradt

[–]Beinsorrydoesntfixme 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I need friends too. Friends that wouldn't minecradting all these lonely feels.

[–]mihirbajaj1248 4 points5 points  (1 child)

We ship create a group chat on msn let me convince my mom to let me get it

[–]coconutjuices 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bruh just imagine them. It’s much easier.

[–]BrainJar 1082 points1083 points  (126 children)

Without the audio on, I still instantly knew what song she was singing.

[–]nifeman20 280 points281 points  (97 children)

Same, its insane how popular that song is even to this day.

[–]Mahemium 219 points220 points  (58 children)

Genuinely good music has no shelf life

[–]IllegalAlcoholic 78 points79 points  (50 children)

Would I be the dumbest man alive if I didn’t know this song until I watched the movie, “Bohemian Rhapsody”? I love that movie to death and this song has been my fav since

[–]mechesh 140 points141 points  (10 children)

Now go watch waynes world.

[–]hate_picking_names 52 points53 points  (0 children)

And then you'll get the joke from Bohemian Rhapsody

[–]Chatmat89 12 points13 points  (4 children)

If you're gonna puke, puke into this

[–]Henry_J 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you're gonna puke spew, puke spew into this

FTFY

[–]kewko 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I don't think that knowledge of any song reflects on your iq but if you were born before 95 it would be very strange

[–]kknickles 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Dumbest no, I'm guessing you're just young, and that's okay.

[–]standish_ 18 points19 points  (9 children)

Nah dude, I discovered Led Zeppelin because of Shrek 3.

No regrets.

For the curious, the first part is Immigrant Song, and the longer one is Barracuda by Heart.

For the even more curious, here's Heart paying tribute to Led Zeppelin at their Kennedy Center Honors.

[–]karanut 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why does Shrek 3 look worse than 1 and 2?

[–]ljg61 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I will forever say that shrek 3 has some of the best uses of classic rock in history for a movie. That whole scene and the funeral scene are amazing. Only two movies that have a better use of a classic rock/folk music are the graduate and Forrest gump off the top of my head.

[–]RandyJackson 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Probably just young. Cause I find it hard to believe you’re over 30 and don’t know the song

[–]Theedon 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Not at all but all your friends are Assholes for not making sure you have experienced it. Now go watch Wayne's World.

[–]KaraveIIe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

depends on your age.

[–]Toppcom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You were simply one of that day's lucky 10 000.

[–]parker2004au 6 points7 points  (2 children)

This is one of those songs where you can't help but sing along.

[–]zulamun 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It's funny how I used to hate this song.

It always topped the annual top 2000 songs in our country (played during christmas towards the 31st of december). The worst thing is, that the sole reason I didn't like the song, was because my mom hated the song and just said "It's gonna be bohemian rhapsody again anyway".

20 years later, having disliked a song that I never really listened to for the first, maybe 20-22 years, of my life.... I love it. And I can completely understand that it always ranks, and still does many years, the top 2000 of best songs of all time on that radio station in my country.

[–]IckyBlossoms 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maybe I’ll get there. I don’t hate the song, but I am completely indifferent to it. It just sounds random. Scaramouche? Fandango? Thunder and lightning? Galileo? What in the fuck do these have to do with each other?

Not that every song needs to make sense and maybe this one does and I just don’t get it. I love Zeppelin, The Beatles, all that old rock stuff but Queen just doesn’t do it for me, and I feel like a shmuck because everyone loves them and I just don’t get the aesthetic of Queen.

I get it that it is inventive, just doesn’t do it for me.

[–]infinitude 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In the same way we still listen to Mozart and Beethoven, people will listen to queen for decades and decades to come.

[–]ZeGoldMedal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s just such a perfect song

[–]Pandepon 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I came here to say just this.

She’s pretty brilliant to have visually told this to us with only the context of mirrors and solo performing some epic lip sync. She checked some major boxes of visual storytelling.

[–]ti82_ 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Also without the audio on, I can tell at 0:24 she does not know the word " Beelzebub" cause she'd definitely mouthing "the"

[–]BrainJar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hahaha... my Ex used to say Ms. Miller for Bismillah. First time I heard it, I was like “What did you say? No, really...what do you think those words are?” We had some good laughs about her thinking that there was a character in the song called Ms. Miller. She took it like a champ and often brought it up to get some chuckles.

[–]TaxationBecomesTheft 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Damn, here I was thinking I was the only one crazy enough to experience this.

"Wait, is she singin--- [ turns audio on ] OH DAMN, SHE IS

[–]pethatcat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why didn't I scroll down before I commented. Upvoted.

[–]TBTW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was about to post the exact same.

“Hmm this could... Yep, Bohemian Rhapsody”

[–]Delirium101 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too! And in reading her lips you can tell that she doesn’t know the line “beelzebub...” because she sings something like “ee-ehlzeboo” haha

[–]somerandomii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ditto. I knew where is was up to when I toggled the audio too

[–]cgduncan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This song is so overdone, I was already expecting it before the video started playing.

[–]goodolarchie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Likewise, and that she messed up Beelzebub

[–]backtolurk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also very easy to recognize "BOUNCE!!!" on the trailer from "The secret life of pets" on mute. Just a random flashback I just had.

[–]Chazzey_dude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ikr, took like 5 seconds

[–]YannisALT 626 points627 points 2 (48 children)

The Elsa bug.

I love it!

[–]slamflynn3107 158 points159 points  (2 children)

So glad someone else noticed this

[–]Talbotus 63 points64 points  (0 children)

Did such a good job on the rest this sticks out.

Very clever all the same.

[–]CrunchHardtack 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Much scarier than Beelzebub!

[–]GrunchWeefer 47 points48 points  (1 child)

I came to comment on how she definitely said "the ellzibub" but I like yours better.

[–]paleoterrra 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Also came here to mention that stuck out to me like a sore thumb

[–]nohemingway4 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Thank God I'm not the only one who noticed that she isn't saying "Beelzebub" 😂

[–]crappy_guitarist 39 points40 points  (0 children)

I was like "wait a minute... "

[–]adabldo 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Good, I'm not alone.

[–]bwainfweeze 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There are dozens of us.

[–]honestFeedback 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One more on that train. Really stand out.

[–]EmperorSexy 27 points28 points  (6 children)

When I saw he mouth make the “th” sound I heard it too.

Turns out this is called the McGurk Effect

[–]cthulhuandyou 1 point2 points  (1 child)

1:55 "Remember, the only sound you're hearing is 'Ba', with a B. Except for me talking over the demonstration every time they change the video to 'Fa' so you can't hear the effect anyway, making this whole section of the video useless"

[–]partlymad 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Ootl. What?

[–]carl-swagan 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The lyric is "Beelzebub, has a devil put aside for me" but she clearly says something different

[–]billions_of_stars 4 points5 points  (7 children)

What’s the Elsa bug?

[–]citriclem0n 18 points19 points  (4 children)

The correct word is "Beelzebub" but she clearly lip syncs "the Elsa bub".

[–]dsac 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A misheard lyric that she uses instead of "Beelzebub"

[–]LegionSB 268 points269 points  (29 children)

I love how the Wayne's World headbanging has become the canonical move for that section, even when impersonating the music video.

[–]The_Celtic_Chemist 64 points65 points  (17 children)

His character mentioned that no one would ever bang their heads to Bohemian Rhapsody and I was the only one in the theater who laughed and a then a part of me died.

[–]Lucas_Steinwalker 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Maybe it’s not that no one else got it, they just thought it was ham fisted and on the nose, like the rest of the movie.

[–]___ElJefe___ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I just watched it acouple weeks ago expecting it to be garbage. Much to my surprise, it was worse than I expected.

[–]SatanicOnion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you! I know a couple of people who learned that trivia and like to shove it down everyones throat like we all don't know who Mike Myers is or have never seen Wayne's world.

It was an okay joke, I like that it was included, but it's not some hidden movie detail

[–]majortom12 5 points6 points  (9 children)

What? That’s not in the movie.

Edit: thanks for the responses, everyone. As a massive life-long Queen fan, I have never seen “Bohemian Rhapsody” and based on this information it sounds like it’s even worse than it looked in the trailer.

[–]merchillio 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I the “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie about Freddie Mercury’s life, Mike Myers plays a producer that says no one would put that song on high volume in their car and bang their head. They gave him that line exactly he was playing the role.

[–]ImNoScientician 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The movie he's referencing is Bohemian Rhapsody, not Wayne's World.

[–]pchorlton 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I believe they are referring to the 2018 movie Bohemian Rhapsody, where Mike Myers cameos and makes reference to his Wayne's world scene. https://youtu.be/qcUUrM4XR3s

[–]jaszercise 2 points3 points  (0 children)

mike meyer's character in the bohemian rhapsody movie

[–]bcr3125 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think Mike Myers makes a cameo in the new movie Bohemian Rhapsody and says this, not in Wayne’s World. I could be wrong tho

[–]mrshawn081982 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Wtf else you gonna do on a riff that hard? It's more evolution than Wayne's World.

[–]xzxz2450 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Seriously, everyone was head banging to that before Waynes wOrld. Idk what else can be done other than head banging.

[–]mrshawn081982 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly my point. I, and everyone else alive in the 80's probably fucked our spines thanks to this song. Totally worth it tho.

[–]Penguin619 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's like these youngin's forgot Queen was pretty fucking metal (Ogre Battle) and even invented a whole new [sub] genre (Stone Cold Crazy); they exuded the need to headbang way before Wayne's World.

[–]MrDTD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Air guitar (could also be with headbanging)

[–]So_Very_Awake 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's almost impossible to not headbang when that rif starts playing.

[–]Controlled_Pair 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a requirement, everyone knows this.

[–]CheaperThanChups 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She needs to work on her technique though because she's gonna hurt her neck.

[–]High_Life_Pony 97 points98 points  (31 children)

This is why the internet exists.

[–]facemelt 38 points39 points  (21 children)

Imagine 20 yrs ago. One might amuse a family member with this skit... but it ends there

[–]GroovingPict 9 points10 points  (17 children)

internet video existed 20 years ago my guy

[–]KyrgyzstanMan 5 points6 points  (10 children)

um, what planet were you on 20 yrs ago? twenty years ago was all about dial-up and it took an hour to download one low quality mp3.

[–]GroovingPict 10 points11 points  (1 child)

well I definitely wasnt in Kyrgyzstan so that might explain our difference in experience

[–]da_chicken 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Flash was a thing, man. "All your base are belong to us" is nearly 20 years old. YouTube is 15 in February. It might'vs been in QuickTime or RealVideo, and probably in 320x240 resolution or worse, but I can see it making the rounds.

[–]KadenKraw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Best you could do was send it in to Americans funniest home videos pre internet

[–]KingGorilla 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I could see this going on americas funniest videos

[–]ChuckBoBuck 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Thanks Al Gore

[–]maybebaked 3 points4 points  (6 children)

I thought it was for porn.

[–]Theedon 2 points3 points  (5 children)

The internet is for porn.

[–]spaghettiwithmilk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is why TikTok exists.

[–]awerm 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Didn’t even have my volume on and still rocked out to this. Good stuff!

[–]happypandaface 10 points11 points  (3 children)

did you record this in my bathroom?

[–]JBloodthorn 8 points9 points  (2 children)

[–]jo_coltrane 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Damn... That’s got to be the most specific audio/visual reference in the history of references...

[–]machomansavage666 82 points83 points  (26 children)

I watched 6 times just to hear Freddie hit the high note.

[–]CorkyDonkins 134 points135 points  (23 children)

It's actually the drummer, Roger Taylor, who hits the high note.

[–]radthibbadayox 40 points41 points  (5 children)

Band: Roger, we need to talk. You aren’t pulling your weight, and now you’re demanding a 30% share of royalties and concert sales? You’re a mediocre drummer at best, and you don’t contribute anything to our creative process. We don’t want you in the band anymore.

Roger: All of that may be true, but..

Band: But what?

Roger: Can you hit the note?

Band: 30% it is, then.

[–]GroovingPict 12 points13 points  (4 children)

I see what youre going for, but calling Roger a mediocre drummer? Thats a paddlin'

[–]machomansavage666 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Oh wow. The more you know. Thanks for the info. Regardless, it’s still impressive.

[–]CorkyDonkins 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Totally! Listen to the song "'39" from A Night At The Opera. He does some great sci-fi style vocals on that song.

[–]Fate2Bringer 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Thank you! A lot people assume it’s Freddie Mercury that hits that note but Taylor was a well respected back up vocalist who could actually hit a higher note then Freddie could. Freddie’s range was MUCH better though. I love Queen. Only band of all time to have all members wrote 3 top 3 hits. Incredible.

[–]mccalli 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I mean, I love the track too but only band? Genesis would like a word, I think Pink Floyd too and there’s going to be a large number I don’t know I would guess.

[–]acherem13 9 points10 points  (7 children)

I too watched Bohemian Rhapsody

[–]YerDaDoesTheAvon 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yes because no one In the world knew that before the film. You truly are a warrior for the cause. Well spotted my man.

[–]dealsonwheelsyall 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anyone that’s familiar with Queen’s full catalogue knows what Roger Taylor sounds like.

[–]NicolasRustyCage 5 points6 points  (1 child)

HIGHER

[–]CorkyDonkins 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I could try to hit the note, but I would B flat.

[–]MasterYenSid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a lady, watching Bohemian Rhapsody for Roger Taylor... etc etc

[–]dealsonwheelsyall 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Freddie could sing pretty damn high but not that high. If you wanna hear Freddie hit the high notes, listen to Under Pressure.

[–]FuttBucker27 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not Freddie, he couldn't sing that high.

[–]Galgacus1 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think the one on the right gives a better performance

[–]Simmion 28 points29 points  (22 children)

Thats amazing. Why hasnt anyone thought of this sooner?

[–]roque72 68 points69 points  (20 children)

Someone did, a couple of years ago

[–]iams3b 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I've seen it a few other times, think it was a Tik Tok meme

I liked this one https://youtu.be/IJ3TmuiZr9w

[–]ReadShift 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That smile during the piano section had me in stitches.

[–]v-komodoensis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More please

[–]Adam_J89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dagum internet proving that everything is replicatable, everything should be replicated, and everything can and will be improved upon.

Media!...?

[–]Patrick_McGroin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's pretty cool, but it's not really the same.

[–]PhesteringSoars 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ahh I love this subreddit . . .

[–]ManWitCat 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I have that exact mirror

[–]NightSky222 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What if this was filmed in your house

[–]FinAdartse 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well that’s only a masterpiece.

[–]pnutsugar 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Don’t know what she was saying, but it sure wasn’t Beelzebub....

[–]Derrythe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've known a fair number of people think that line starts with 'the' not the 'be' from beelzebub. Which is so strange because that makes it something like, the elzebub. The song is full of real words, why would he spew nonsense here?

[–]DoverBoys 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is so stupid. I love it.

[–]GaandKeAndhe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is pretty fucking cool.

[–]BlooperBoo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I didnt even have to unmute to know what song she was doing

[–]T-Bone1983 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I watched this with the sound down and knew right away it was Bohemian Rhapsody. Brilliant!!!

[–]zade1996 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Damn. When I do this with the mirror, my asymmetries POP the FUCK out

[–]toppercat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I watched it twice. I'm pissed my mirror in the bathroom doesn't open Like this. Damn

[–]Mike_Facking_Jones 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She pronounced her B in Beelzebub like amouranth did in Bigger store

[–]BeauDoug 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I played that 10 times. I wonder how many times it took he to get that. Freaking epic

[–]licla1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Made me smile, especially when she starts headbanging

[–]ALPHAMAGNUS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anyone else wish she alternated left and right mirrors more?

[–]diemunkiesdie 3 points4 points  (13 children)

What song is this? Seems like it is from some musical?

EDIT: Sorry, I know who Queen is, but I don't know any of their songs. Blame my parents for not being into music so I don't know old things.

[–]tempesonic 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It's from a band yeah, they do some music, bands are weird like that.

[–]altiar45 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Im not sure if you are joking or not. Its Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

[–]namewithak 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

[–]DoritoBenito 2 points3 points  (1 child)

...have you really never heard Bohemian Rhapsody? You’re in for a treat.

[–]2geekedup 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

[–]Piratey_Pirate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Very cool. I just wish she switched mirrors for the background vocals where they switch audio channels. That would have been perfect

[–]gHHqdm5a4UySnUFM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was hoping for more mirrors

[–]Thelinkr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldve been great if she held up another hand mirrior for the high note

[–]demianjohnston 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She did such a good job lip-syncing that that I was able to read her lips immediately and knew what song it was.

[–]UnnecessaryPeriod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha that's pretty damn good..
