The co-founder and legendary guitarist of Queen, Brian May, recently posted a video on his Instagram account and asked for his fans’ forgiveness considering the delay in the shipping of his new custom made items.
As you know, Brian May often uses his Instagram account to talk about his projects, share his views about music, raise awareness on social matters, promote charities, and talk about science since he is an astrophysicist.
Aside from musician, Brian May is an entrepreneur too and he recently created a series of owl viewers which enable users to view 3-D content; such as stereo cards, stereo illustrations in magazines, and books. They can also be used to watch 3-D videos and VR content on smartphones.
The viewer is named SteamPunk OWL and since their price is reasonable, Brian May received hundreds of orders for his new product. Even though this is a positive thing, it also made the packaging and shipping process a little harder.
Recently, Brian May posted a video of his new product on Instagram and apologized to his fans who have been waiting on the edge of their seats for their original custom made products to arrive. He thanked them for their support and warm response and said that even though the introductory presentation box edition is almost sold out, the new ones will be in transparent pouches.
Another interesting aspect of his recent post was the song that was playing in the background. A hardcore Queen fan immediately recognized that the song was ‘Machines (Or Back To Humans)’ by Queen which is also one of their most electronic songs. It sure isn’t a coincidence that Brian May picked that song as the background of his video.
Here’s what Brian May said in the caption of his Instagram post:
“I love seeing happy customers out there. Sorry they took a while to reach you, but we got a little swamped with orders for the new SteamPunk OWLs (I should be happy to say!) The introductory presentation box edition is nearly sold out, but the new guys will continue to be available in the transparent pouches and with a new info sheet in Steampunk style.
Thanks, folks for such a warm response – may they give you many happy hours! Bri (thanks Sarah Rugg)”
