Hey, did you know it's Freddy Mercury Day today?
To celebrate Freddie's 65th birthday, Google has put together probably one of the funnest Google Doodles to date, showing Queen's iconic singer performing in front of his fans to wearing drag and dancing with a vacuum cleaner ("call me for a good time").
From the article on The Telegraph:
Queen guitarist Brian May, writing on a special Google blog, said: "Freddie would have been 65 this year, and even though physically he is not here, his presence seems more potent than ever. Freddie made the last person at the back of the furthest stand in a stadium feel that he was connected. He gave people proof that a man could achieve his dreams."
Doodle designer Ryan Germick added: "The video has a lot of fun, goofy stuff to celebrate what an incredible song writer, fashion icon, and musical innovator he was."
