Funny, That: Mike Myers


Wayne’s World

Before Mike Myers hide behind (and inside) some great inventions, like Shrek, Austin Powers, The Love Guru, and others, he was just a guy, sitting in his mother’s basement with his best friend: Wayne Campbell.

Now he’s added a cameo on Bohemian Rhapsody as Ray Foster, the music producer who would forever be remembered as the man who rejected Queen’s greatest hit.


I didn’t recognize him. As Ray, Mike hardly moved an inch, which is so unlike his normal acting style (which is frenetic). If it hadn’t been for one line of dialogue, I would not have given him a second thought.

During the pitch by Queen, after hearing the whole six minutes of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Ray Foster says:

We need a song teenagers can bang their heads to in a car. Bohemian Rhapsody is not that song.

I laughed out loud. I immediately twigged onto the fact that it was a not-so-subtle reference to the famous video of the boys in the car, banging their heads to “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I wonder if Mike Myers wrote that line as an ad-lib.
