Syracuse Comedy Troupe’s ‘Boeheimian Rhapsody’ Spoofs ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
Under the heading of ‘why didn’t somebody think of this sooner,’ file the ‘Boeheimian Rhapsody’ video that Syracuse-based comedy troupe Humor Whore released earlier this week. The parody of the Queen song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ neatly works in the surname of Syracuse men’s basketball head coach, Jim Boeheim, the Orange’s impending move from the Big East to the ACC and the basketball team’s decades-long struggle with free throws.
There are some inside jokes about Syracuse life and the upstate New York campus, but ‘Boeheimian Rhapsody’ is a very well done parody of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ right down to the lyrics and the video production. Any video that can work in Carmelo Anthony and Dog Marrone is sports comedy gold.
Your move, Georgetown.
