There I was minding my own business, logging into my favourite Queensite, when I followed the home-page "Latest Queen News" link.

Electric 6 Radio Ga Ga video online
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can see the video on the Electric 6 website:
http://www.electricsix.com/media_video.html

What can I say? I thought it was brilliant! It was a funny and affectionate parody - and to be filled with so many Freddie and Queen references - betrays not only an intimate knowledge of a body of Queen work - but a genuine affection for the guys also. (I just loved the poodle-haired guitarist - how to piss-off BHM in one easy lesson!).

Now I know all this has been discussed before - so here is the new twist. I can certainly watch the full video - but how can I save it - or can it be saved elsewhere - so that morons like me can have permanent access?

John - Just seen it and absolutely pissed myself - great cover, although a couple of lines wrong, and a great video - He really does bare a resmeblence to Fred! Will be nice to have a Queen song in the charts for Xmas! I cannot in the life of me see what all the fuss is about!

I failed to download it, too. I think it's really funny. What a shame that so-called Queen fans actually sent the guys threats and hate mails. How stupid and narrow minded can people get.


I do not want any google ads here.

I think it rocks! The only thing that pisses me off about the video is that bloody cheesy kid that claps!... Apart from that, brilliant!

I can see why fans don't like it, but you've gotta see the funny side!...

I have to admit, I was relented to watch the video, but I have no problem with it. Especailly the ending with the gravestone and RIP on it. Matter of fact, even downloaded it.
The only thing I thought would've been great, would've been if they used cats instead of the dogs. But thought it was more of a tribute to Freddie/Queen then anything. And btw, he does resemble Freddie in a couple of scenes. But if a band wants to cover a Queen song, more power to the legacy of Queen, still after all these years.
I don't take no offense to it. Thought it would've been worse then i excepted.

Oh, it's great, it's a HOWL!! (LOL)
I had to watch it a couple of times to get the full effect. The "Freddie" has the moves and the ass-shake down to a science!! The dogs are TOO cool. I liked all the nice touches in the video, there's nothing at all morbid about it, it's FUN like a Darkness video!

I've been looking for that video for awhile, and finally it was linked on Brian's site! I loved it, especially the poodles. Dork that I am, I had no clue that they were referencing Brian's hair! Great video. I went in to it thinking they were making fun of Freddie like everyone's been saying, but it was just a fun, tongue-in-cheek video. I don't think Freddie would've been mad at all about it.

don't accuse ME of hating it (by saying "you all" you imply EVERYONE!!!!
read ALL the previous E6 threads - i have condemned (occasionally a minority voice) those who have criticised it

I have loved the arrangement and the vid - from the start - check MY posts on the subject - then feel free to apologise - or are you not grown up enough yet to admit being wrong?

thequeenling
did'nt say we LOVE it, just thought it was more in respect and credit to Freddie then anything. The band does paradoy vid's, and this was'nt as putting Freddie/Queen down. It could've been alot worse! What's to hate about it, 1st off, they acknowledge Freddie and Queen and apologize if Queen fans took it the wrong way. As much as I regret the passing of Freddie, life moves on, and if a band wants to cover a Queen song, that says alot! I really when I first heard about it, before seeing the video, thought it was disgraceful, but after seeing it (which have u seen it yet?) I don't see no reason to be upset over it. What good will that do, people have there expressions and it'll always be in anything in life, someone will oppose it. It's just a fact of life, and never will go away, noone in the world will ever agree on anything, cuz then this would be a perfect world, which we all no, it's not! And never will be.
Move on with life, lifes 2 short!
