Moreover, the Hungarian ambulance car in their quarantine video is unique; only a few are still in service in Hungary. Check it out.
According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, the Queen together with Adam Lambert, an American singer, published a new album titled “You Are The Champions” in which they remade one of their most popular hit songs, “We Are The Champions.” The song debuted two weeks ago on the Instagram page of Brian May, and each member of the band performed their part in their homes. Interestingly, they
offered all income related to the hit
for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Solidarity Response Fund that was created because of the Covid-19 epidemic.
In the clip, they show many well-known parts of the world, including Budapest’s Castle District and a Hungarian ambulance on which there is an inscription, Dorog, which is a Hungarian city in Komárom-Esztergom county.
The National Ambulance Service told that the ambulance car of the clip is currently in Komárom-Esztergom county and it is one of the last serving vehicles of its type. They added that their fleet had been renewed and in most places, there are already yellow-coloured modern ambulance cars.
Queen and Adam Lambert said that even though they had to postpone their tour in Europe because of the disease, they hope that all their disappointed fans will be able to find some sort of consolation if they listen to their new clip.

And HERE we wrote about the magical concert Queen gave in Budapest in 1986 during the Communist regime and during which Freddie Mercury sang a Hungarian folk song. Below you can watch the full concert on a video:
The 1986 concert of Queen was one of a kind, not just for Hungarians, but for the band itself. There were 70,000 tickets for the show and, even though people had to wait three hours for a ticket,
each was sold in two days.
It was a great sensation, so was the movie about their performance – said László Hegedűs, organiser of the event. The concert was part of the “Magic Tour” to introduce their brand new album, Kind of Magic to the fans. They played in the National Stadium (Népstadion) of Hungary, which most of you probably know as Puskás Ferenc Stadium today, on 27th July.
The concert was the very first big arena show in Eastern Europe, so it was significant to the neighbouring countries, as well. The band spent five days in Budapest: they came along the River Danube from Vienna with a hydrofoil, visited Margaret Island, drove go-carts on the fresh asphalt of the newly built Hungaroring. According to Hegedűs, there were no special requests from their side; he thinks the whole hype around stars’ needs is just something for the media to chew on.
This is how Freddie Mercury sang “Tavaszi szél vizet áraszt” then:
