The actor is set to play legendary frontman Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, which chronicles the events of the years leading up to Queen's iconic performance at the Live Aid concert in 1985. "Ah, yeah, that'll work", we thought calmly, then went on with other tasks.

Now, some no-good villain has snuck onto the movie's set and captured some illicit footage of a recreation of Queen's iconic 1985 Live Aid show, complete with some dancing and some vocals that are nearly certainly too good to be true.

The short clip filmed from a crowd perspective, shows the Egyptian actor on stage playing piano and apparently miming Bohemian Rhapsody.
