Queen: I Want to Break Free (1984 Video)
- Summaries (2)
Queen's video for "I Want to Break Free", which is considered a camp classic in the UK but effectively ended their career in the United States, where it received a negative reaction and was boycotted by MTV.
The video depicts Mercury as a housewife, loosely based on Bet Lynch, who wants to "break free" from his life. Although Lynch was a blonde in the soap opera, Mercury thought he would look too silly as a blonde and chose a dark wig. May plays another, more relaxed housewife based on Hilda Ogden. Deacon appears as a conservative "grandma", while Taylor plays a schoolgirl, who like Mercury wants a different life.
