‘Bohemian Rhapsody Guy’ Gives an Awkward Encore Performance
By now, you’ve seen the infamous video of 29-year-old Robert Wilkinson, the man who delivered a drunken rendition of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ from the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser. Now, Wilkinson attempts an encore by performing “Handle With Care” by the Traveling Wilburys.
While wearing a shirt that fittingly reads “I don’t get drunk. I get AWESOME” and playing guitar, Wilkinson busts out a passable version of the song. And while we can’t attest to his state of mind in this video, he appears to be nowhere near as wasted as he was when he sang the hit by Queen.
Perhaps that’s why his encore seems a little…off. Still, his bravado during the lackluster performance reminds us of a few tipsy wannabe Bob Dylans we knew in college. Far be it from us to suggest that Wilkinson get drunk each time before he attempts to sing, but it sure seems to help.
What do you think? How does Wilkinson’s encore compare to the original?
