Okay, I'll admit the rings are pretty damn clever!

England, I'm sorry, but this is like watching Blazing Saddles. I can't get anything but amused....and I'm laughing as I'm typing here and watching on the other screen. It's all to over the top stereotype and over the top absurd.

God... laughing is all I can do.

The rings are now showering light down on mankind.

So basically - the brits were a backwards people (happy but lost), and then they entered the industrial revolution which was horrible and brought war and pollution and hate. Then the 60's brought about a social awakening and finally all men came together and united and became enlightened once again.

freaking creepy...
I don't know what to think of the whole thing...
Did the guy just say something about everyone being equal? I think not.

notice how the lower class were doing all the work and then the bankers / suits steeped passed them to be in front as if to take all credit for the end result.

Where is Mr. Bean?

anyway, now they are showing a film at Buckingham Palace. James Bond is walking in to see the Queen. -sigh- The Queen is slow. -sigh-

Come on already.

Hopping in to a helicopter. Flying over adoring fans waving flag. Spotlighting the usual London landmarks. I'm totally lost on the significance of putting Bond (Hollywood) at the same level as the Queen.

-sigh-

Still flying. Now over the stadium (live once more).

Quite literally, yes.. That is part of what added to the overall pure laughter I got from it. Do they even realize how ..... damned corny all that looked??? I was half expecting Mary Poppins any moment.

Where was little boy Oliver? Maybe I missed him running for seconds.. I mean wow.

The games ought to be a nation's greatest moment of pride and real shine to the world. I'm sort of embarrassed after watching what I have.

"A royal arival unlike anything we have ever seen."

An actress queen jumps out of the helicopter and is parachuting down.

The queen is entering the stadium (for real) with the IOC president.

-sigh-

All stand and clap for the queen.

The hill that started the show (the shire) with the tree is back to its former self. The British armed forces are now walking the flag up to it.

just ignore the download stuff and close those out - it's just layers over it.


I'm sorry but I have NO idea how that link is working for you. I got a Norton security error and like 12 pop ups even without clicking on them. I even installed a "plugin" (not even sure if that was by choice) and still there is a huge box in the middle of the video that won't go away. Horrible!
