Puscifer mostly play it straight on their recent cover of Queen's glam-opera classic "Bohemian Rhapsody," which appears on the band's new Donkey Punch the Night EP, out today (February 19). The same can't be said of the six-minute epic's John Waters-flavored music video. Frontman Maynard James Keenan and drag performer Dina Martina superimpose their heads over old black-and-white film footage, guest-starring in 1950s hook-ups at look-out point and testicular exams in the doctor's office. More disembodied heads later float over the Taj Mahal, the pyramids of Egypt, and other locations as MJK pummels a keyboard and leads an inspired "WILL NOT LET YOU GO" bridge. Dina Martina hijacks the final two minutes though, lip-syncing in front of a karaoke room backdrop that cuts from an acid-rock freakout to a cloudy screensaver. Watch the whole thing up above.
