Jake Guthrie and his friend Gonzalo did, in fact, manage to escape from reality.
At an IHOP diner in Morgantown, West Virginia, the pair created a video that went viral on Twitter, featuring three syrup bottles singing along to “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. How did they do it, you ask? Guthrie filmed while Gonzalo operated the bottles with his fingers.
THOSE ARE MY FINGERS!!!!

The video was posted on October 7, and has since gained a significant amount of traction on the Internet. It has almost 40,000 retweets and 96,000 likes. It seems like the song is stuck in everyone’s heads, now! Although we doubt this is a marketing strategy for the new Freddie Mercury biopic, it doesn’t hurt that the movie’s release date is set for the end of this week. People seem to be loving the syrup bottles’ inspired performance:
You can only get that kinda greatness at that restaurant

@IHOP if you don’t use this as your next commercial, you don’t understand humans.

Hopefully IHOP will recognize Jake and Gonzalo’s brilliance.
