Olympic Opening Ceremony

Last night I stayed up to watch all the Olympic Opening Ceremony on TV of course since getting tickets wasn’t exactly easy. I was very sceptical like alot of us Brits since we ain’t well known for putting on a show, normally just end up embarrassing ourselves, but as for alot of people following the #Olympics tag on Twitter was very surprised and impressed at the show. It contained history, technology, showmanship, special effects, 007, the Queen jumping out of a plane! and even Mr Bean, which is properly the most Mr Bean has trended on Twitter for years! But he was funny as he always was without saying a single word true to form.

The best kept secret was all the Brass Kettles which walked with each flag to the Teletubby Hill in middle of the arena, but these was all joined together to make one super cauldron as a sign of unity of the countries during the time at the Olympics.

Another amazing feature of the stadium was that every seat was part of the opening with a individual LED panel which made up videos, special effects and one of the biggest projection screens possible! Was very impressive the amount of work people have put into this one show and how much preparation it must have taken to prepare for this one moment to show the world we can truly put on a show.
