Watch 'Bohemian Rhapsody' turn into a noir crime thriller

Mama! I just killed a man! You know the words, but maybe you've never seen the famed Queen song taken quite so literally.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? A new video from Corridor Digital is, well, both.

The video takes (most of) the wonderfully loopy and catchy lyrics to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and envisions the 1975 hit song as a heart-pounding crime drama. We don't need to tell you the plot: Mama, he just killed a man! Put a gun against his head, pulled the trigger, now he's dead.

But no matter how well you know the lyrics, it's intriguing to see some of the smart choices the video creators made. "Thunder and lightning" are very, very frightening indeed.

And if watching makes you want to hear the actual song again, here's that video, from Queen's official YouTube channel. Carry on, carry on.
