If quarantine and self-isolation has taught us anything, it's that people are being more creative than ever while confined to their homes. 

From recreating Disney parades to perfecting your music skills, people all over the world have found ways to keep themselves entertained amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Take this Queen fan for example. Recorded by his mom, the young man jumped on his family's roof to recreate Freddie Mercury's legendary ‘day-oh’ sequence from Queen’s iconic 1985 show at Live Aid and yes, it's incredible.

Using a broom as his microphone and his best Freddie Mercury costume (a white tee and blue jeans) the young man transforms into the iconic frontman and nails his mannerisms from the Live Aid performance.

It's definitely a video that'll put a big smile on your face and maybe inspire you to try it out yourself — please do be careful if you now have the urge to jump on the roof as well though.

He's not the only mega Queen fan channeling the band during quarantine. A nine-year-old and his grandfather virtually performed a duet of “I Want To Break Free” with the little boy rocking out on the guitar.

As for the band members, Brian May recently commented on a 'curious' coronavirus trait that hasn't been investigated just yet. “[T]here seems to be a sharp dividing line between the people that it infects very mildly and the people to whom it becomes an enormous threat and can kill," May said. "This is quite unusual." He also has opened up about focusing on lessons and joys of isolation.
