Pontious Pilates: Pretty weaksauce closing ceremonies so far. Nothing will ever top the Canadagasm in Vancouver two years ago. Giant inflatable beavers, Katherine O'Hara. They had it all, and it was so deliciously cheesy.


And to top it all off, they had Nickleback play in an attempt to drive the foreigners out of the country.

Or at least that's what I thought the reason was.

The crowd is singing Our House in the original key, even though the original singer can't.

Probably Jess Ennis winning gold.

WhyteRaven74: And for once Harry has to act like a grownup. Also, wondering why he's there, not his brother or his dad if the queen couldn't make it.


Got to make sure the peasants know where their silly celebrations rank in the national hierarchy.

Oh god no, please don't tell me we have to deal with Ryan Seacrest too?!?!?!

Lost Thought 00: I would prefer they replay an old recording for this song. This guy can't sing anymore.


Ya, he's not got the pipes.

hehehe yeah probably not far from the truth

Wait, what? Is Blur not there? If the Gorillaz make an appearance, this ceremony automatically wins.

Described it to my friends as "South Park Presents: Canada! ON ICE". Was never so proud to be Canadian as during those few hours.

I'm glad I got high for this

Apparently British music began and ended in the 80s

What in gods name is this shiat. It's like an 8 bit video came come to life.

OK, the Pet Shop Boys is pretty sweet.
 
2012-08-12 08:35:23 PM
The parking cone hats are weird.
 
2012-08-12 08:35:28 PM
Apparently the girls have crossed town.
 
2012-08-12 08:35:29 PM
Oh...kay....Pet Shop Coneheads, everybody!
 
2012-08-12 08:35:38 PM
Ok. This is where I tuned in for two minutes.

Bicyclists are wearing traffic cones. Your argument is invalid.

There's plenty of variety to come

ds_4815: IMDWalrus: If NBC messes with my Who and George Michael, there will be bloodshed.

Gonna have to wait 'til just past the Olympic flame snuffing out for the former; no idea if NBC will keep interest until then.

/A certain British comedian also makes a musical appearance


Please say Benny Hill, Please say Benny Hill, Please say Benny Hill,

The live feed on NBC's site earlier needed no announcers, just captions that identified acts as they came on stage. Couldn't NBC save some cash by doing the same and getting rid of these guys?
 
2012-08-12 08:36:30 PM
The fun is the song is West End Girls, but the stadium is in the East End.
 
2012-08-12 08:36:31 PM
Do they even pay attention to the lyrics of the songs they selected?
 
2012-08-12 08:36:35 PM
I wonder who's going to clean the tracks with all these British Cars leaking oil all over the place.
 
2012-08-12 08:36:59 PM
Have I hear of One Direction?

No, I have not.
 
2012-08-12 08:37:03 PM
Aaaaaaagh!
 
2012-08-12 08:37:06 PM
OMG ONE DIRECTION
 
2012-08-12 08:37:07 PM
"Have you heard of 'One Direction'?"

No.
 
2012-08-12 08:37:12 PM
One Direction is British?

Who knew.
 
2012-08-12 08:37:13 PM
Aaaaand muting the Simon Cowell Pedophile Experience.
 
2012-08-12 08:37:14 PM
The band sounds like the farking JONAS BROTHERS...
 
2012-08-12 08:37:16 PM
I turn it on for 5 seconds and hear a mistake in the first 5 seconds. "West End Girls" is not a hit from 1984, it's a hit from 1986.

/turned it back off

From Wikpedia:
The first version of the song was produced by Bobby Orlando and was released on Columbia Records' Bobcat Records imprint in April 1984, becoming a club hit in the United States and some European countries. After the duo signed with EMI, the song was re-recorded with producer Stephen Hague for their first studio album, Please. In October 1985, the song was re-released, reaching number one in the United Kingdom and the United States in 1986.

awfulperson: It's called MY COUNTRY 'TIS OF THEE.


I've always wondered, what does "TIS" mean?

DamnYankees: Have I hear of One Direction?

No, I have not.

 
2012-08-12 08:37:26 PM
So that's who One Direction is.

The song isn't terrible.

David Addison approves of the West End girls

How many times have we heard "Born in the USA" in the last couple weeks?

And I was never so proud to have grown up 45 minutes from the border and thus understood most of what was going on. Good on ya, Canucks. That was fun.

Are frosted tips coming back?
 
2012-08-12 08:37:54 PM
OM MAGOODNES ONE DIRECTION! SWOONIES!
 
2012-08-12 08:37:56 PM
Now, now, let's not all just be ugly Americans, too cool for the room , just saying how much everything sucks. When something is cool, shout it out!

My tall glass of spiked iced tea is pretty cool.

This is done by Brits, they don't get that wrapped up in stuff like that. They're just having a good time. Hell they played a snip of a Sex Pistols song during the opening ceremony.
 
2012-08-12 08:38:04 PM
The Beibers is a band?

It's on the radio all the damn time though.
