Bohemian Rhapsody – John Lewis made the worst ever advert in 2018?

Bohemian Rhapsody
Bohemian Rhapsody made No.1 in several countries upon its release, and is one of Queen’s greatest ever songs.

It was given a brilliant homage in 1992’s Wayne’s World, as Wayne, Garth and their friends sang along to it, but oh my… what have we here, but potentially the worst ever advert ever created!

As you’ll see below, they’ve turned it into a garish school play, full of annoying kids, half of which seem to be shining a torch in their face. And, of course, one in the Bohemian Rhapsody opening ‘four’ shot has a fake moustache… Oh, if only Henry Cavill had learned from them, Justice League wouldn’t have needed that additional CGI.

I can’t even see what the point of the advert is, as John Lewis normally only splash out for Christmas adverts, and this one is made in conjunction with another shop that sells overpriced tat – Waitrose.

However, since Roger Taylor, John Deacon and Brian May have been whoring out the band’s songs to adverts for some time now, with the godawful Flash cleaner advert having the Flash Gordon theme sung by a dog with a CGI mouth, and Another One Bites The Dust becoming “Another one drives a Duster”, i.e. a Dacia Duster… a car, basically.

In addition, this wasn’t the first time May took a big dump on creativity as his 1991 song, Driven By You, was allowed for use in another car advert for Ford.
