Fans of British humor received a nice surprise during Friday's Olympic Opening Ceremony. Rowan Atkinson, or as he's better known, Mr. Bean, joined the symphony to play "Chariots of Fire." He became so bored from playing his one note that he pulled out his phone, took some pictures, sneezed, then day-dreamed his part in "Chariots of Fire." With the help of a car, he won the race on the beach.
He was far from the only famous Brit to get a moment in the spotlight.
Noted British actor and director Kenneth Branagh played a part in the opening skit that introduced the Olympic rings.
Yeah, that's David Beckham
looking all suave.
This is Sir Tim Berners-Lee. He invented the Internet. Blame him if you don't like what you're reading now.
