Kanye West’s headlining performance at Glastonbury Festival last Saturday was eventful to say the least. In addition to getting interrupted by a British comedian onstage and bringing out Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, the rap megastar performed his version of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”—and now one radio station has imagined how the band’s late frontman, Freddie Mercury, might have reacted.

New York’s Q104.3 FM spliced together footage of West’s Glastonbury cover with clips of Mercury laughing in an interview. Then it turned the tables, editing together a live performance of “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Mercury himself with interview clips of an unamused West.

Check out the full clip below.
