The unemployed Canadian man, Robert Wilkinson, uploaded this clip of his inebriated version of Bohemian Rhapsody to his YouTube page after receiving it from prosecutors as evidence after he chose to fight his drunk driving charge. He has let it be known that he has about a thousand dollars ($ Canadian) to his name and is looking for legal counsel.
According to the officials: “After getting busted last November in Edson, Alberta, Robert Wilkinson, 29, was placed in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser, where he launched into an a capella version of the Queen classic”
To quote the artist “This has to do with the brotherhood of man on planet Earth.”
Is it just me or does he resemble “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski?
Officer : Sir, calm down
Robert Wilkinson: I can’t. Do you have to cuff me?
Officer : Yes I do
Robert Wilkinson : Physical violence is the least of my priorities.
In his free time, the home-brewing Mr. Wilkinson says he is ‘solving the world’s problems, one beer at a time.”
We also want to give a shout out and thank you to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who were kind enough to let him finish the second half of his rendition in the station parking lot.
It got me thinking, what song would I sing, if arrested for public intoxication and were sitting in the backseat of a squad car?
It would be “Take on Me” by a-ha, literally.
That would show them.
