Balcony performance videos during the coronavirus quarantine have been very popular, but one man in France took things to the next level.

The clip below shows a man cosplaying as Freddie Mercury circa Live Aid pantomiming the Queen classic “I Want To Break Free” on his balcony. There’s a lot of say about this performance, but there are two standout moments:

1. Kudos for adding the vacuum, a nod to the song’s music video.


2. It’s amazing that this man’s presumed spouse and child appear to not really be phased at this display.

Out of a total of five stars, I’d give this man four, but if he wants to early a perfect score, he needs to full drag like Freddie did in the “I Want To Break Free” music video.
