Andy Serkis' Gollum Sings 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Parody After Failed Brexit Vote

Andy Serkis' new moneymaking role may be the Gollum version of Theresa May that he's been making so famous on British airwaves.

The actor, who gained fame in the early 2000s for his role as the creature Gollum/Smeágol in Peter Jackson's legendary film series The Lord Of The Rings is making Labour Party supporters everywhere very happy as he mercilessly makes fun of Theresa May and her conniving Brexit deals.


Before Christmastime, right as the Brexit deal Theresa May had come up with was due to be put to a vote, May suddenly cancelled the vote to avoid a crushing defeat.

Meanwhile, Andy Serkis' Theresa May delivered an impassioned monologue regarding the Brexit deal that brought the world to tears of laughter.

And now, following the largest defeat of any bill in British history on May's Brexit deal, the prodigal parody returns.

Serkis released a video of himself reprising the role and belting some solid, Freddie Mercury approved, Bohemian Rhapsody--but with lyrics referencing May's historic defeat.


"Open your eyes, did you notice the lies or see? I'm just Theresa, I need your sympathy…"

The video has since been shared by the likes of Stephen Fry, and has Twitter in an uproar as well.




The UK is set to exit the European Union with or without a plan on March 29, 2019. With no clear plan of how to proceed, the prime minister faced a no-confidence vote, which she survived by a merely 19 votes (a much smaller margin than her plan's 200+ vote defeat).

May must deliver a new Brexit plan to Congress by Monday, which is now open to edit by Parliament. If May cannot pass this Brexit deal, the consequences of a no-plan Brexit could include a Great Depression-esque economy crash for the UK.






May's administration has said on multiple occasions that it will not accept a second referendum, which is what most political scientists say is exactly what the prime minister needs to do.

The second referendum, referred to as the "stay" option, would allow the country to vote directly again on whether or not the UK should leave the EU for good, but also to stir the pot and get parliament out of the dreadful state of deadlock it's currently mired in.








"In the coming weeks parliament will have the chance to take control. That starts by being open about the dilemmas we face, and the credible choices that are still available," Keir Starmer said on the floor of Parliament, following the failure of the second deal.

No word from Parliament on their thoughts about Andy Serkis' star turn as their prime minister.
