Assam Police has shared a creative post warning against fake news - using a Bohemian Rhapsody reference. The Police altered the iconic song and shared it on the official Twitter handle, and the tweet is winning the heart with its clever wordplay and creativity. Considered to be one of the greatest songs of all time, the 1975 song was the first single released from Queen’s fourth studio album, ‘A Night at the Opera’ and has forever etched a special mark in the hearts of music lovers all across the globe.
Changing the lyrics a bit here and there, they wrote, “Open your eyes/ Look up to the skies and see/ Real life is not a fantasy.” Using people to “fact check” before they forward, they played upon Mercury’s words, “There’s no escape from reality.” With #DontFakeIt, the social media managers of the cops twisted the song’s line ‘Mamma, I don’t wanna die’ to “Mama, I don’t wanna lie” in their social media post along with a poster of the film, starring Rami Malek in lead role.
Here's how the Twitter reacted to it:
