2012 Olympic Games
At the Olympic Ceremony being held in London, the head of the British monarchy, Queen Elizabeth II arrived in style. She parachuted in with actor Daniel Craig as James Bond
The stunt began with a pre-recorded skit directed by Danny Boyle in which Her Majesty notified 007 that his new mission (should he choose to accept it?) has to launch the Olympiad.
Then the two leapt onto a helicopter as the Queen’s Corgis barked below and made their way to the Olympic Stadium where Craig and the Queen (in the form of stuntmen) parachuted to the ground to the James bond theme. Their parachutes were, of course, made from huge Union Jacks.
In my opinion probably one of the best opening parts of any Olympics.
