If you only watch one web video from the Olympics make it this one!

thumb_white.gifLondon 2012 will be fantastic, we are all excited about welcoming the world to this great capital. 

It will be the ‘fun’ Olympics.

On Sunday evening in Beijing our new Mayor, Boris Johnson made a speech inviting the world to experience our games. 
For those of you who don’t know this great man he is a noted academic, journalist, bon viveur and wit – a true British eccentric – and he himself reflects the ethnic diversity of London with a mixed English, Turkish, Russian and German heritage.
Boris does not do ‘politically correct’ stuff, in fact he is often prone to gaffes but for a rousing, British and amusing kick-off for 2012 you cant beat this clip.
If you like it watch him playing football (soccer) against the Germans in a celeb match a couple of years ago – hysterical.
Those of you in the UK can see a better quality clip from the  BBC here (it might not work outside of our geography)

 

BTW Ping Pong’s coming home!

If the Beijing Olympics seemed to lack fun, it was because the BBC edited it out, barely showing anything of the Olympic village yet alone the festivities in the city.

I was not inferring that Beijing was not fun, however I hope the theme for 2012 is. Were you there ? or were their feeds of the fun stuff - if so where could we have found them it might make for an interesting post,
