Is Supergreg the Guy from Queen? (20 Jan 2004 at 21:29)
Is Supergreg the Guy from Queen?
Is "Supergreg" the Guy from "Queen"? This 1988 footage seems to answer in the affirmative.

For those who missed the boat in 2001, see the #1 Tribute Site.

For those who caught the boat, here's an update: It turns out Supergreg was just part of an ad campaign for lee jeans. (video) The site was created by some of the staff as a joke, and then turned into one of the most underutilized viral marketing campaigns of all time!

For the record, the "guy from queen" was Freddy Mercury. As for the buddy lee commercials, I thought that everyone knew that. They had a bunch of websites (one with a redneck racer guy) and each of them were in commercials.

Freddy Mercury died of AIDS.

I never saw them either; they must have been pretty short run.

No, it's just that it would have been easy to miss the fact that it was supergreg that Buddy Lee was in a DJ battle with (or the redneck racer guy that he was in a race with, etc.).

Maybe that's true, but I don't even remember Buddy Lee.

Super Greg is Ali-G, Borat... AKA (real name) Sasha Beren Khoen (not sure if the spelling is right though)
