Can you trump this? ‘The Donald’ sings Bohemian Rhapsody

April 3rd, 2012

Donald Trump does Bohemian Rhapsody from Hazel Cameron on Vimeo.

In November 2010 Queen guitarist Brian May gave his permission for Bohemian Rhapsody to be reworked to highlight what he described as “…a horrible example of bullying the defenceless by a rich man who apparently can buy anyone or anything he wants.” This has resulted in the above satirical music video featuring a three-foot puppet of US property developer Donald Trump strutting, strumming, and warbling his way through a revised version of the 1975 Queen hit.

Most of the land on which Trump is developing his Scottish golfing resort was designated a SSSI – a Site of Special Scientific Interest – yet this has now been bulldozed. Shamefully, it has happened with the full support of Scotland’s business and political establishment, including first minister Alex Salmond.

In the video, fun is poked at ‘The Donald’ and the issues surrounding what happened at Menie are questioned. To find out more about the events behind the video go to trippinguptrump.com or go and see a screening of the multi-award winning documentary You’ve Been Trumped
