The Cosmopolitan - Let Me Go / Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - (2012) :60 (USA)

Cheeky guy at the hotel pool bar sneaks in an origami-swan to the mobster (?) bossman's pretty lady, and a spontaneous rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody breaks out. Spoken word version. Until the young man proves he has a surprisingly high voice as he sings "Let me go".

Works very well, as they'll tie it up with the line "just the right amount of wrong", the iconic Queen song actually kinda works as a dialogue, but then we always knew that before we headbanged ourselves silly to it.

First aired February 12, 2012 during The Grammy Awards.

(Sidenote, ever notice that there's only a one letter difference between "lady" and "lay" as I originally typed the blonde woman's description. Revealing typo right there, mate.)
