This four-minute short film entitled Literal Bohemian Rhapsody is played out. Each scene chronicles in detail the 1975 hit by the Queen front man. The film starts with the protagonist, gun in hand. He is bleeding, and police sirens can be heard from a distance.
In the next few minutes, the story unravels some more. There are gunshots heard. He runs to his mama’s house. He tells her, “Mama, I just killed a man. His mama weeps as he packs his things and gets ready to leave- for good. He knows he’s doomed. His mama knows he’s doomed. And yet, he’s not ready to give up.
