As it is known, imitation is one of the basic characteristics of humans and primates.
Which, in turn, can become pure creation, but also with a sense of humor.
When both are combined, the result can be quite interesting as well as instructive.
So, an online cover of Queen’s well-known song has been released online, specially adapted to the current situation we live in almost all around the world.

One of the most popular recordings is Queen’s hit “Bohemian Rhapsody“.
After that, numerous posts by comedian Dana Jay Bein appeared on Twitter.
