Mr. Bean Plays Greek Music for London Olympic Opening Ceremony

The one and only Rowan Atkinson, a.k.a. Mr. Bean made an appearance during last night’s London Olympics Opening Ceremony. Mr. Bean played a few integral notes during Chariots of Fire enthralled the spectators with English humor.

Atkinson took centre stage as a part of the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by famous music conductor Simon Rattle. As the orchestra played out a rendition from the Chariots of Fire, written by Greek composer Vangelis Papapthanasiou, Bean was seen playing a single note on the keyboard.

Bean slowly dozed off while playing the single note. Cut away to a scene of the iconic film “Chariots of Fire”, where Bean tripped legendary British athlete Harold Abrahams to breast the tape first during a classic beach-running montage.

Again cut back to the stadium, Bean was seen still tapping his one note even after the song had ended. The crowd cheered to Mr.Bean`s cameo and to the music of the internationally known Vangelis.  Watch the video below:
