*Stomp* *stomp* *clap*. *Stomp* *stomp* *clap*. *Stomp* *stomp* *clap*.
Do that virtually anywhere and chances are whoever you’re with will know exactly what song you’re about to start singing. Of course, I’m talking about the timeless Queen hit “We Will Rock You.” In the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, we knew there would be plenty of re-enactments of song origins, and in this new clip from the film, it shows off the origin of this classic.
In the clip, we start out in what looks to be someone’s home. Band member Brian May, played by Gwilym Lee, is urging his band members to stomp their feet and follow up two stomps with a clap. Freddie Mercury enters the clip, asking what’s going on, and Brian says he wants the audience to be able to perform a song and tells Freddie to envisions thousands of people stomping and clapping to the beat.
What follows is pure rock bliss. Sure, it’s a bit cheesy and on the nose — and most likely a rose-colored version of the actual events, but dammit, sometimes that’s what we want in these movies!
Below is the official synopsis to Bohemian Rhapsody:
“Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.”
Bohemian Rhapsody hits theaters on November 2, 2018.
