Brian May Rocks Closing Ceremony, Resembles A Poodle

Queen is inarguably one of the most famous and most beloved rock bands of all time, especially within Great Britain. At Sunday's Closing Ceremony, following a call-and-response using footage of the late Freddie Mercury (sadly not Hologram Freddie Mercury, but we'll take what we can get), the crowd at Olympic Stadium was treated to a shredding guitar solo from Queen guitarist Brian May! Or possibly Harpo Marx. We're still not quite sure.


It takes a ton of talent to look that smug while playing a guitar solo. And also while looking like Billy Connolly dressed as your grandmother.

After this ripping solo, May was joined by Jessie J and her amazing yellowcolor longcoat to perform "We Will Rock You." The less said about that part, the better.
