Watch: James Bond escorts The Queen to the 2012 Olympic Games

If you thought Danny Boyle’s opening ceremonies for the Olympic Games weren’t going to be off the chain, well you were wrong. In what seemed to be a never ending pastiche of everything British, there were many standout moments. Tim Berners-Lee live-Tweeting from the center of the arena, Mr. Bean playing Chariots of Fire with the help of a cell phone…but this one has to take the cake.

Watch as MI-6 super-spy James Bond himself escorts The Queen to the games personally…and yes, the royal Corgis have a speaking part.
