Olympics Opening Ceremony: Mr.Bean enthrals fans with English humourLondon: British comedian actor Rowan Atkinson, famously known as Mr.Bean, enthralled the spectators with English humour during the colourful opening ceremony of the 2012 London Games at the Olympic Park.

Atkinson took centre stage as a part of the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by famous music conductor Simon Rattle. As the orchestra played out a rendition from the Chariots of Fire, Bean was seen playing a single note on the keyboard.

Bean slowly dozed off while playing the single note. Cut away to a scene of the iconic film "Chariots of Fire", where Bean tripped legendary British athlete Harold Abrahams to breast the tape first during a classic beach-running montage.


Again cut back to the stadium, Bean was seen still tapping his one note even after the song had ended. The crowd cheered to Mr.Bean`s cameo.
