A funeral company has apologised after a vehicle used to transport corpses was filmed blasting the Queen classic ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ while stationed outside the funeral parlour.
Employees were away from the vehicle when the hit reportedly came on its radio.
The music was audible on the street, as the driver side door of the vehicle was ajar. A passerby took notice and recorded it.
“Oh dear,” he can be heard saying.
The man later explained that he was on his way to his doctor’s office for a prescription when he noticed the music coming from the ambulance.
“…I couldn’t believe it as I got closer I heard ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ by Queen playing out on the radio,” he recalled. “Some would say it was great comedy timing. It was real dark humour.”
He added that the song was indeed coming from the radio and couldn’t have been intentional on the part of the employees.
A spokesperson for Southern Co-op Funeralcare apologised for the incident and promised that management would be “reminding drivers to be more mindful to avoid similar oversights in the future.”
