While Queen Elizabeth‘s surprise Bond stunt was an early highlight of the fantastical 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies, another man was trying to cash in on her starring role.
Moments after her stunt double parachuted into the stadium, a billion people watched the queen deliver a speech to open the Games of the XXX Olympiad.
The cameras also captured several people surrounding Her Majesty. Just over her left shoulder, a tall dignitary, realizing his face was cut from the shot, dipped his knees so he wouldn’t miss out on his 15 minutes of fame.
Unfortunately, the man’s hilarious maneuver — he looks like he’s taking a six-inch drop on an imaginary elevator — has gone viral. It’s only a matter of time before the mad photobomber’s identity is revealed.
