IT’S ALL OVER, people. Move along, there’s nothing to see here. (Well, except the Paralympics, which is possibly, if anything, better.)
The London 2012 Olympic Games concluded last night with a closing ceremony that cost around €25million. And which was apparently dreamed up by director Kim Gavin during a single feverish night, following a heavy dinner with extended cheese course.

1. Eric Idle performs Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life
Surrounded by (a) Bollywood dancers…

2. 80,000 people interact with a dead person on a giant screen
OK, it was Freddie Mercury, but still.
3. Brian May’s hair
Fourteen High Court judges died just so he could perform. That’s Jessie J he’s serenading by the way.
4. John Lennon’s giant face, containing dozens of children
They’re in there, holding up those blocks. Really.
5. Russell Brand’s outfit
Sorry – our apologies. It’s just his regular outfit.
6. Fatboy Slim appearing out of a giant inflatable octopus
Cower before me, octo-minions!*
*What he was probably saying.
7. So that’s where the Spice Girls have been this whole time
In tiny barred cages on top of taxis. I always suspected.
They lured them into captivity during the late ’90s by covering the taxis in diamante. Anyway, they performed Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life:
Problems watching the video? Try it here.
8. Nuclear war!
Joke! LOL. That’s just the massive fireworks display at the end. Which also looked like this:
