The Name’s Bond
London hosted the Olympic Games in 2012 and won global acclaim in the process. The opening ceremony was a highlight of the event because it was spectacular. Meanwhile, the Queen stunned the world when she participated in a short sketch with famed British actor, Daniel Craig.
Craig played the iconic role of James Bond as he escorted the Queen to the event. Brilliant choreography made it appear that the pair skydived into the arena. It was also a smart move on the monarch’s part because she knew that the public enjoys this engagement with popular culture (via AV Club).
