VIRAL VIDEO: Arrested man sings Queen in cop car

(RNN) - It seems the popularity of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody pops into our cultural consciousness every few years.

The latest popular incarnation is sung by Robert Wilkinson, of Edson, Alberta, who was arrested for drunken driving but still managed to sing the entire six-minute song in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser.

An unemployed home-brewer, Wilkinson, 29, posted the video of himself being arrested and singing (and swearing) on YouTube.

Other popular renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody include Glee, which cut scenes from the rival show choir performing with one of the main characters giving birth. Weird but intensely riveting.

Speaking of weird, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel released a commercial during the 2012 Grammy Awards that used the lyrics to set the scene of a mobster stopping a man from hitting on his girl. The hotel's tag line is "Just the right amount of wrong."

The Muppets released their own version in 2009, harnessing the power of video conferencing and Animal – how can you go wrong with that combination?

And of course, the original and most popular version is the hilariously lip-synched performance in Wayne's World, making it one of the most referenced pop-cultural movie scenes.  

Aren't you surprised that the officer didn't respond with "We will not let you go" after the "Let me go!" portion in the song?
