It’s no secret that Twitter is where social networking junkies go to talk about events as they unfold, so what was the most popular event of the 2012 London Olympics’ Opening Ceremony according to Twitter?
Apparantly, it was the part where Rowan Atkinson, Mr Bean himself, came out and performed an hilarous homage to the Olympics set to The Chariots Of Fire soundtrack. Twitter wrote on its blog:
The biggest spike in Twitter conversation during the Opening Ceremony? When Rowan Atkinson, a.k.a. Mr Bean, appeared in a hilariously memorable homage to the Olympians of “Chariots of Fire”.
Of course we can’t show you the clip in question thanks to the fact that this is the most stringently controlled commercial exercise in history. And here I thought it was a chance to celebrate sporting excellence. How wrong I was. Enjoy these fireworks instead.
