We will mock you: Stansted hair salon owner's Covid mask message to passers-by
The reworked lyrics of a Queen hit are amusing passers-by of a Stansted hair salon – reminding them to wear their face masks to protect against spreading the coronavirus.
Steve Fisk, owner of The Salon in Chapel Hill, dressed up his window mannequin on Saturday to look like the world-famous rock band's late lead singer, Freddie Mercury, on what would have been the star's 74th birthday.
Taking the lyrics to Queen's 1977 No 2 hit We Will Rock You, which was released as a joint single with We Are The Champions, the sign reads: "No mask on your face, you big disgrace, spreading your germs all over the place."
Steve said: "I defy you to read it without singing 'We will, we will rock you'!"
It is not the first time this year his mannequin has caught the eye. During the panic-buying of toilet paper at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, he used the model to offer a free roll to customers with every haircut – while stocks lasted!
