Bicycle Race Queen video
A few weeks ago, we fell in love with Holmes’ drastically reimagined address of Ice Cube’s “It had been a beneficial time.” We weren’t the sole people either; one commenter labeled as it potentially “the best rap address previously.” It served as good motivation to look at their covers record album titled – watch for it – Covers. Now we have another reason: a whimsical video clip for their type of Queen’s “Bicycle Race.”
Animator Pete Michail, which works on numerous tasks at Cartoon system, put it collectively. It’s an adorably literal ride through the song’s words, with Peter Pan, Frankenstein, and Superman – not forgetting Darth Vader, who’s never ever seemed therefore huggable. The clip meets a song that is similarly grounded, as Holmes (Roy Shakked) tells us:
Queen was most likely the best team whenever I ended up being a higher college freshman. I simply couldn’t get an adequate amount of those outrageous singing harmonies, Freddie’s incredible sound and that awesome Brian May guitar tone. It was grounded within the classical harmonies that We heard on lots of my dad’s old Deutsche Grammophone files however it just rocked in a very powerful however nice means. As a young child i simply took “Bicycle Race” at face worth and viewed it as a fun tune about bicycles. On second listen though it's apparent the bike is just a metaphor in addition to tune becomes about escapism and individuality. My version is probably the nearest someone to the initial of the many tracks about this record album. I switched May’s guitar solo with a few crazy quick synthesizers, imagining a crazy competition as I had been playing, and tweaked the proper execution just a small bit. This was awesome enjoyable working on. An ode to a great band.
