July 31, 2012 - The Summer Olympics Grand Opening

It is the Grand Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics and who should make a Grand Entrance?



Why Mary Poppins, of course!!



Oh, wait. Here comes the QUEEN!!!!!

The Queen parachuted in with Daniel Craig as James Bond in tribute to his James Bond series.

via Hello! and more.



Quote:
In reality the parachutists were actually Gary Connery, playing Her Majesty, and Mark Sutton, in the role of Bond.

WHAT?!

That wasn't the REAL Queen?

Now I am full of disappoint.

It was up until the para jump :P

And her corgis too.



DanaC  Wednesday Aug 1 08:21 AM

Props to Danny Boyle for even considering asking her Maj to do something like that.

Hard to imagine many heads of state who'd be up for that.

Slick Willie would've done it.

And possibly Boris Yeltsin - but you would've had to promise him a large vodka gimlet upon landing.

Putin does it on his daily commute.

Gary Connery is Putin's stunt name.
