‘Queenie – Radar O’Reilly’

This parody of Queen’s ‘Radio Ga Ga‘ is really a stretch from the original concept of the video. I kept most of the ‘futuristic’ Fritz Lang ‘Metropolis‘ imagery’, but turned it into a tribute to Gary Burghoff’s character in M*A*S*H, Radar.

I don’t know why…’Radio Ga Ga’..’Radar O’Reilly’…It just sounded right!

Some nice little background gags in the 4rth panel of Page 1 giving nods to more modern sci fi references like the star ship Enterprise, a Tie fighter from Star Wars, Superman (in the wrong ‘Metropolis) and of course…George Jetson!

Here’s the original video by Queen:

  1. Oh god thank you for posting this. I remember this back when and I’ve been trying to remember where I’d seen it. Still brings a big chuckle. 🙂
