Video: Google Remembers Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury would have been 65 years old today.  To celebrate, Google UK has put together a doodle in tribute of the bisexual rock icon.  He died on November 24, 1991, from complications from the AIDS virus.

On a personal note:  When playing the Google video for the first time, my three year old ran to my laptop and screamed, "Is that Freddie?".  She has never heard that particular Queen track before.  Yes, we play that much Queen in our home.  In fact, she has known all of the words to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' since she was 18 months old.

Secondly, am I the only one that can't hear 'Don't Stop Me Now' without thinking of 'Shawn of the Dead'?
