Update: ... and the current James Bond sits by as the Queen jumps out of the helicopter! The famous Bond theme kicks into gear as the Queen parachutes (with a United Kingdom flag on the back) into the stadium. Enthralling!
A video is showing Daniel Craig (as James Bond) arriving at Buckingham Palace. And the queen is in it! The genuine queen, not some costumed performer. She just said, “Good afternoon, Mr. Bond.” What a trouper! They’re getting in a helicopter (on video). And now they are jumping out of the plane (through special effects). Cute.
But now here’s the real queen in the stadium. Darn, if only she had actually arrived by parachute, or even helicopter. I guess that was a bit too much to ask. The Union Jack is also arriving under honor guard. And “God Save the Queen.”
In the middle of God Save the Queen, 600 staffers from the National Health Service run out onto the arena rolling hospital beds, each occupied by a patient. A little odd, granted, for an Olympic ceremony. Wonder what Mitt Romney thinks of this segment?
