We're not worthy!
Here’s a musical reunion we’re all too happy to get behind: the cast of the classic ’90s music flick Wayne’s World have gotten back together as part of Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart series to celebrate the film’s iconic status thirty years on.
The virtual reunion saw the film’s co-stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey – in character as Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, nonetheless – joined by Tia Carrere, Robe Lowe, Ione Skye and Lee Tergesen to reminisce on the impact of the movie and the music that informed the creation of the 1992 film.
The cast members were also accompanied by the likes of Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor to discuss the use of the band’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ for that iconic car scene, as well as Alice Cooper and Aerosmith members Joe Perry and Steven Tyler, who respectively appeared in Wayne’s World and Wayne’s World 2.
Discussing the use of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in the film, Brian May attributes the film’s use of the song as being a primary factor in revitalising their popularity in the United States, and even disclosed to the cast that Freddie Mercury had witnessed the clip in the final days before his death.
“I took it (the tape) around to Freddie not long before he went… and he laughed and laughed. He was very weak, but he just smiled and laughed,” the guitarist revealed.
Watch the clip in full below.
