Timonthy Blais is a graduate student in physics at at McGill University in Montreal. He's also the latest You Tube sensation. His rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," with new lyrics about string theory is approaching 1 million views.
"I mostly did it because I thought of it and then it couldn't not exist," said Blais, speaking with The World's host Marco Werman. "This is sort of the way I operate with creative ideas: I think of something that I love and then I just sort of have this compulsion to finish it."
