I was really excited to find out the original version of the Bicycle Race video is on YouTube. I don't know how it got in my head that the video would include Freddie riding around on a bicycle naked. It was just disappointing, really.
On the other hand it was kind of refreshing to see Freddie in some kind of different garb than what you'd expect. Skintight black leather pants, and a blue and white checked long sleeved shirt. Can I just say sexy. But it would have been sexier if Freddie had also taken off his pants and hopped on a bike and joined those naked girls. Plus I wouldn't have been so disappointed with the whole thing. I mean the blue and white checked long sleeve shirt and skintight black leather pants would have done it for me had I not expected a little more.
Plus in the song, Freddie said
he wanted to ride his bicycle. Freddie stop being a teaser. You would expect more from a flambouyant sex icon. I was just kind of disappointed, is all.
