In further confirmation that you can make anything 1000 times better by simply sticking a pun on it, Deliveroo has unveiled a special ‘Bohemian Wrapsody’ menu to coincide with the UK release of Freddie Mercury biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
Running from now until Friday 26th October, four Queen-inspired wraps will be available for lucky Londoners to order exclusively through the food delivery app and, better still, all profits will go to the Mercury Phoenix Charity which supports those with HIV and Aids.
The pun-inspired campaign follows a successful Drag Race menu from Deliveroo featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race’s very own British drag queen Charlie Hides.
Each wrap costs £5.54, in honour of the runtime of Bohemian Rhapsody (5 mins and 54secs – of course), and if you fancy a little bit extra then you also have the exclusive option of adding Brian-Mayo(naise)… We love it!
The four wraps available are:
- Salami to Love: Tortilla wrap with salami, red peppers, iceberg lettuce with Brian-Mayo
- Fat Bottomed Grills: Tortilla wrap with grilled chicken & crispy bacon with salad
- The Egg & Mayo, Egg & Mayo (Figaro): Tortilla wrap with egg mayonnaise & cress
- We Will Rocket You: Tortilla wrap with Feta cheese, black olives and rocket leaves
Joe Groves at Deliveroo said:
Freddie Mercury is a treasured icon and the songs of Queen have shaped the musical landscape of the 21st century. The band are embedded into British culture and we love them at Deliveroo.
He added: “The dishes are the perfect treat for any Queen fans and one look at the restaurant’s menu will have you thinking; I want it all!”
The menu is available to order exclusively through Deliveroo during the week of the movie’s release, Monday 22nd October – Friday 26th October.
The Mercury Phoenix Charity was set up by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Jim Beach in memory of Freddie Mercury who passed away in 1991 from complications related to Aids.
In 2017, an estimated 21.7 million people were receiving treatment for HIV, however, only 59% of the 36.9 million people living with HIV in 2017 were receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART0. The Mercury Phoenix Charity funds smaller charities worldwide including Action Aid, Barnardos and Health Aid UK.
