Bohemian Rhapsody mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the "Another one bites the dust" scene, Freddie is given a sheet, which he holds with his left hand, beer in his right. A shot later the beer is gone and the sheet has swapped hands. Then a shot later the bottle reappears in his right hand. He never gives it or has it given back. (01:12:55)

Suggested correction: Freddie drops the lyrics sheet after shoving it in Roger's face - he holding his beer in his right hand. Freddie gives the beer to Roger and when the camera moves to a close up of John's hand's playing the bass, Freddie crosses in front of John and picks up a new sheet from the table where Brian is sitting. The bottle never reappears in Freddie's hand.

You're basing your correction on a moment that occurs minutes later in the scene. And the table is 3 meters away. He couldn't have left the bottle anywhere.

Factual error: We see Fat Bottomed Girls being performed in 1975 in the USA. The song wasn't played live for the first time until 1978.

Trivia: When Ray Foster, played by Mike Myers, is talking about Bohemian Rhapsody, he says that isn't a song to "hear in the car and yell" - exactly what Myers did when it played in the car in Wayne's World.

Question: What is the significance of the bar scene they keep cutting to during the live aid performance? It does not appear to be the same door that Freddie first played with Smile so I'm not sure the significance. Also, who is the blonde guy with glasses sitting next to Bob Geldof when Bob is asking for money? That's supposed to be someone famous?

Answer: It's not any specific bar, it's just a very common trope in this kind of movie to show everyday people in a bar/pub watching/responding to a massive televised event (cf. V for Vendetta). The guy sitting next to Bob Geldof is David Hepworth, who's not super famous; he's a British music journalist and was a co-presenter of Live Aid.
