2012 Olympics: Bad opening ceremony, or the worst opening ceremony?

So much potential, such a letdown.

Athletes are still entering so maybe they'll pull it out of the fire, but when the highlight so far is a comedic cameo playing a 30 year old song, I don't have my hopes up.

Molten iron rings were cool though.

Can we just rename this the official 2012 Olympics bitch and outrage thread thread?

When did Jacques Rogge die? His reanimated corpse is giving the worst speach of all time.

These opening ceremonies have been GREAT so far, well done Danny Boyle. FQ@%! Yeah Arctic Monkeys!!!

Very Entertaining apart from the traditional Athletes Parade.

It didn't end with the Monty Python foot squish. Fail.

My Grandad would have absolutely loved the whole Mr Bond escorts Queen Elizabeth II bit.

Nice touch featuring the NHS. Wish we'd promoted that part of Canadian culture.

Anyone else notice the two Mike Myer's references? Wayne's world and Shrek?? WTF?

Sad that I only caught the last two minutes at the Whistler Olympic square.

I only saw 2 minutes of it, but the wife [HTML_REMOVED] son said it wasn't very good.

Ok so the chick leaves her phone..guy picks it up but then how is he texting her and then they meet, kiss, and he gives it back.

Why am I trying to figure out plot lines of this thing!?!

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.
