Yeah, this opening ceremonies is a bag of uhoh.gif

The only cool thing is the molten steel olympic rings and the LED's in the stands.

Had a dodgy start with the sheep and top hats but that was absolutely fucking amazing. Dunno what it was like compared tot he Chinese one since I don't normally bother watching thousands of people walk round in a circle.

BTW our opening ceremony cost $40 million to do, the Chinese cost $100 million in a country where things generally cost a fifth of what they do here.

Her Majesty didn't like it much though as much as the BBC insisted what was going on.

Who here knows Mr Bean and who thinks we just have a cretin playing the piano?

What's with the dogs in the Queen/James Bond vignette? They got more screen time than both of them combined. confused.gif

This is terrible. Every Olympics from now on should outsource their opening ceremonies to the Chinese.

Wow, this is totally embarrassing.

Bonus points if we're treated to highlights of Sir Roger Bannister or Seb Coe's great mile races, or the theme from Chariots of Fire at random intervals, or a Crookedest Teeth on a Hot Bird segment. Would hit (mouth closed)!

fuck you archery rules. best sport. you suck.
