    Oh god save the queen - she must be about ready to quit, rather than face this humiliation. Come to London. It has rain, buses, people being run over on tiny bikes, and weird dancers - oh, and we just wanna give you a whole lotta love! FFS.

    Sitting in your house with nowt but a pencil and scrap of paper you could have designed 8 minutes of entertainment to represent London, better than that shaming shambles.


    Some Aphex Twn or DnB, 200 dancers and a 100 ft fibre glass bus.

    Our austerity Games have started :(
  14. tommers

    That was fucking dreadful.

    It would have been better if a battered old Routemaster had drawn up and Cliff Richard jump off :D
  22. tommers

    tommers I did it!

    is monkey, scrolls, and substituting pretty kids for ugly kids all the chinese have to offer? it was 8 mins for the olympic closing ceremony, it's not going to be cutting edge and cool, is it?

    this memory tower thing is good.

    well that may represent your idea of London (or Cornwall if we're talking Aphex Twin :D ), mine too, but not most people's.

    Sadly, when we end up doing things like this, seemingly the safest option is to retreat into cliches.
  25. DJ Squelch

    DJ Squelch King Of Insides

    Anyway back to Chinese showing us how it should be done. I feel pwned.

    Jazzz the truth don't care Banned

    I was going to start a thread about this yesterday.

    a "quintessentially British moment" was what they were trying to achieve. Since when has utter naffness been quintessentially British? :rolleyes:

    Mind you I haven't actually seen it
