Lip-sync battle has been one of the most popular viral challenges this year, and it was mostly various law enforcement agencies that stole the show with their epic entries around the world. Now, it seems, the battle has even reached India. In a video going viral, two men dressed in army fatigues is seen lip-syncing to Freddie Mercury’s iconic hit, ‘I Want To Break Free’. Only instead of real musical instruments, the men are seen mimicking a guitar with a shovel and a flute with a sickle.
What’s more interesting is though there aren’t any audience before whom they are performing, the man playing his ‘guitar’ passionately can be seen interacting and singing with utmost fervour into a ‘mic’ — also a shovel. The entertaining video has left people on Twitter impressed and fans rooting for them urging them to go to talent shows.
The video was shared on Twitter by Temsutula Imsong, the environment activist who rose to fame for her cleanliness drive at Varanasi’s Prabhughat, and even garnered praise from PM Modi. Sharing the video on the microblogging site, the woman from Nagaland wrote, “Somewhere in NE most probably .. these guys surely know how to stay happy!!”

Although the men performing in the video is not known, another man comes in between the performance to identify that the ‘guitar player and singer’ is from Nagaland, while the man impersonating as a ‘flautist’ is from Assam. The video garnered a lot of attention online and Twitterati can’t stop praising them, and even singer Richa Chadha shared it.
