The Dew Dudes rip off Queen's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" in a TV spot clearly inspired by the fun Mike Myers and Dana Carvey had with this tune in "Wayne's World." It's nice to see the Dudes in a somewhat more artistic pursuit than in their usual stunts of chasing down cheetahs or getting into street fights with Jackie Chan. Still, it is a "Do the Dew" effort, and it bubbled to the top of a category that overall failed to impress our jury, hence the lack of any commendation winners.
