Question: What do you get when you mix a cappella, sock puppets, string theory and Queen? Answer: The geekiest (and astonishingly good, musically speaking) cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" EVAR. Easily the greatest physics-themed cover of the classic we've ever heard.

Ripe for airing on an episode of Big Bang Theory with all of the guys loving it except Sheldon, who will criticize the science in the video.

All physicists want to be musicians.

No musicians want to be physicists.

It’s rare that a master’s or PhD will be an entrepreneur, but this chap is definitely...download fees, revenue stream and quite the entertainer...bright future...even so, he can’t beat gravity (sorry, corny humor).

It has only just begun for this guy.

I see BOR, GMA Fox and Friends just to start.

Then in a few years, dancing with the stars. If he can dance too.

He is an artist, tying the brain halves together. Of course, Queen helps with their masterpiece.

Can anyone on FR follow the science and math?

WAY beyond anything I can grasp.

And this was a Master's thesis? Wow!

Imagine what his PhD thesis will be.

10 thumbs up!

Bad taste in pop music, but good work recording, videotaping and editing.
