For those of you who missed the London Olympics Opening Ceremony last night or didn’t want to give up 4 and half hours of DVR space you missed quite the spectacle. The Opening Ceremony was directed by Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle. As you can imagine it involved a lot singing children and a lot of old timie British clothing. There were many British celebrities like David Beckham(with his shirt on . . . sigh), the Royal family, Orlando Bloom, and Paul McCartney.
The highlight of the night was really the Queens entrance. She filmed a little video with Daniel Craig aka. James Bond. Then jumped out of a helicopter. Okay so it was a stunt double but still. . . it was nice to see her having some fun.
Oh yeah and if you were wondering why NBC didn’t broadcast the Opening Ceremony live- one word- commercials. And if you were on the West Coast than you got to see it even later. Don’t worry everything else should be live.
