Did Queen record We Will Rock You with Britney Spears?

Submitted by: Richard Orchard

As part of a Pepsi commerical, Brian was commissioned and produced a version of We Will Rock You with Beyonce, Pink and Britney Spears. Brian and Roger also featured very briefly in the video - which showed everyone in the Colleseum during Roman times.  Britney, Beyonce and Pink were dressed as "gladiators".  Albeit, it is unlikely many gladiators wore the exact costume that they were wearing.... The world premiere of the video was held before a performance of the Queen musical "We Will Rock You".  Brian and Roger, as well as Britney Spears, Beyonce and Pink all turned up.  As well as many Pepsi executives. Brian completely finished the production of the song, thinking that it could potentially be released as a charity single.  This did not happen though.
