Mr. Bean Steals the Show at the Olympics

Mr. Bean, aka Rowan Atkinson, stole the show during Friday’s opening ceremony with his musical act alongside the London Symphony Orchestra–performing “Chariots of Fire.” Below, you can view the performance and several more of his musical performances from the past.

The second video, his performance of a Beethoven piano sonata, I’d rank as one of the great comedy routines of all time…then again, I’m a complete nerd! Enjoy…

In other news Drudge linked to the UK Guardian asking folks how they are getting around NBC’s monopoly on Olympic coverage. No official live stream of the ceremony is allowed.
