William Shatner “Interprets” Bohemian Rhapsody in Thomson Holidays Ad

Thomson Holidays - Discover Your Smile

William Shatner has a unique style when it comes to his musical interpretation of classic songs. His performances of Bob Dylan’s ‘Mr Tambourine Man’ and the Beatles’ ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’ have been referenced as unconventional classics or one of the worst songs ever recorded, depending on who you ask. Over the years he has released a total of 5 other albums included 2011’s ‘Seeking Major Tom’, which included covers of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

It’s that tripped-out version of the Queen classic that’s been used in a new ad for Thomson Holidays. In the ad a well-used one-eyed Teddy Bear undergoes the challenges of everyday life, from being hung out to dry clothesline by the ear to attending tea parties in tiara and tutu.

It’s not until he’s taken on a vacation that his life in transformed by meeting a flirty unicorn.
