I know most of you guys have already seen it, but I figured, what the hell, I'll post it anyways, cause its such a goofy video! :)

this really is quite a goofy video. Which is kind of a shame since the song is so good. When I first saw this one I couldn't help but to think that Freddie looked a lot like Jim Carrey from the movie Dumb and Dumber, but with a moustache (sorry Freddie) I can see why this video might have caused a bit of a shocked fan reaction towards his new short haired, moustache look (which was originally introduced in this video)

and I'm just not sure what to think about the moment where Freddie wrestles the guitar away from Brian and then runs off just to turn around and throw it back to him. heheh. Who decided that would be a cool idea? I think Brian should have done the same thing with Freddies piano..lol

still one of my favorite Queen songs though.

Yes! That haircut was severe wasn't it?! Looks like he did it himself without the use of a mirror! I always giggle at the 'backwards jump onto the drumkit' shot and that moment where there's a close-up on each of them singing "play the game" but Deaky just stares at the camera! I never got the whole flames/topless-soaked-with-water-and-vaseline look...though I think it was his mission to remove clothing in as many videos and concerts as possible!

I love the video, look how far Freddie can bend backwards!!!

It's my favorite song as well. I think I like Freddie's appearence but it looks like Freddie was wearing a hat before this, as the back of his hair has a mark where a hat goes..

Yeah, he does look like Jim Carrey from dumb and dumber in the video...lol, he was outta control when he stole Brian's guitar, Brian was looking like, 'dude, what the fuck you doin, give that back!' and then he throws it back, lol!

Who directed this video, they must have been on ectasy that day or something, lol!

you will notice that Brians Red Special was not used in this video. heheh.

Of all the videos from my Greatest Hits and Classic Queen VHS collections it seems this is the only time they worked with this director, Brian Grant while most others were brought back to do other videos. Unfortunately it doesn't mention if he was on ecstacy or not. It would help explain things though. :-)

yeah freddies hair cut was still evolving at this time, as it was still kinda long in the back. His better haircut would be done soon.


Roger: Can I go To Lunch Now?

Brian: No, You Can't...

Freddie: Oh Shit, All this crap again?!

Oh yeah, Billycat, I noticed that too...Brian wasnt having that, lol...thats his baby!

I read the bio section on here, and in 1983, he actually used a child ticket for the airline to take care of his guitar while he was traveling to the US...he doesnt play around with that...lol!

I don't get it. Youtube.com is able to keep loads of official and unofficial Queen related material on their site for quite some time now with seemingly no hassles about it but you're concerned that QZ is gonna be shut down or get in some kind of trouble for simply posting a link to youtube? that doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure that youtube.com is far more popular and wide spread on the net than QZ.

I realize I'm new here but I have rather enjoyed this discussion about this video.

Do you think I would be doing something wrong towards Queen by telling a friend or writing on a messageboard, "hey, you can find a bunch of great Queen stuff over at youtube.com"?
