Is there a reasonable reason why this is posted under Queen Extravaganza?

Ya Marc Martel is singing and it's a Queen pastiche. The mods can move it wherever but I think this is the most relevant place.

Oh....sorry. I noted a few moments of a stupid bacon bowl commericial and stopped it, didn't realize Martel was singing.

As much as I love the man I'm a little disgusted. He's selling out a little too soon to be tasteful. (no pun on the bacon which I love too). I had no problem with Brian May's "Driven By You" adapted for Ford, Brian had well established himself and garnered world wide respect in every area he desired.

It's one thing to use Freddie's voice (yes I admit it) for serious music, but until someone shows me a commercial with Fred doing the honors, I will continue to shake my head.

I enjoyed it as a bit of fun but I was a little surprised he did it while still being a Queen Extravaganza member. So I understand your feelings.

Do you know for a fact that it is Marc Martel singing? There could be another Freddie impersonator out there who sounds like him.

If it IS Marc, I think there is a Marc Martel thread somewhere in this forum. Can't remember where!

I thought that was hilarious.
Extremely good pastiche of Queen, and possibly even more OTT than they would have done.

Wether or not its Martell makes no difference. He's not Freddie so cant 'sell out'.
Personally I'm not sure it sounds like Martell cos he sounds closer to Freddie (sometimes) than this song.

Either way I loved it.

That was actually kind of cool. It is a great thing that Mark did this. Are you kidding about Freddie Mercury being in commercials?! Queen have used their hits four years in commercials and it is great!

It's Marc, not Mark. Probably due to his French-Canadian roots. Please post me an example of a commercial product that Freddie Mercury sang a little ditty for? My memory isn't what it used to be. I did not speak of a licensed Queen song that QPL let out for advertisers to use after the fact. And again, Queen's reputation is long established, globally.

It really is no big deal, but if you want to refute me, I'm merely looking at it from the 'anti-Martel' pov where they mock him already. I personally enjoy his voice no matter what he uses it for.
Obviously Marc isn't worried about it; who knows how this will weigh out down the line, though if this is the worst thing he does, he'll survive quite well. Frankly, from his many interviews and introduction to his new "Impersonator" album, I think he gets a large kick out of the controversy surrounding him.

Clearly he has bigger doses of silliness in him than I knew. If Freddie's "Delilah" were a cat food product, these two songs would almost be on par with each other.
