Bohemian Tango (Queen vs Calle 13)

This started out of curiosity.

The Bohemian Rhapsody is a complicated song as everybody knows and I was curious if it was possible to do anything with this song at all.
It's probably the mashup I worked longest on, discarding it at first when I had made my first try.
After a few weeks I heard it again and thought it wasn't that bad after all, so I gave it another try.
Some problems I could solve in due time and this is the result.
I'm quite certain that many consider it sacrilege to use this song at all, but that's the challenge isn't it?
The instrumental is by Calle 13 from Puerto Rico, labelled a reggaeton act but they are much more than that and one of the best groups out of Latin America in the last few years.

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
