We’re not going to pretend that there was ever much mystery surrounding the soundtrack to this advert, but if the name escapes you or you’re young enough not to have heard it before, the kids are performing a cover of the Queen song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Quite simply a musical masterpiece, the track was first released in 1975. Here’s a look at the singles official music video which, since being uploaded to YouTube in 2008, has so far been viewed 620 million times:
Taken from the bands classic album ‘A Night at the Opera’, the song features such unique lyrics from singer Freddie Mercury as “Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango” and “Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me”. Any of you who’ve watched the 1992 film ‘Wayne’s World’ will surely also remember the classic scene in the car when the characters sing along to this amazing song.
