Rowan Atkinson Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of 'Mr. Bean' by Driving Around Buckingham Palace on the Roof of His Mini

Earlier today, renowned British comedic actor Rowan Atkinson celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first episode of his classic sitcom Mr. Bean by recreating the iconic roof driving scene from the 1994 episode "Do-It-Yourself," while cruising around London's Buckingham Palace.

British comedy icon Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) headed to Buckingham Palace to celebrate 25 years of success, the release of Mr Bean 25th Anniversary DVD Boxset and new animated Mr Bean episodes airing on Boomerang. Commuters and tourists alike were witness to a unique and rare display of live comedy from the funny man as he rode down The Mall, on the roof of his ever reliable lime green car, to celebrate in extra-special fashion.

Racing down the world-famous road, weaving in and out of St James’s Park and towards Buckingham Palace and a huge pile of birthday presents, this wouldn’t be the same classic comedy icon we all know and love without him getting involved in a series of driving mishaps (!). Not only did he manage to get the date of his birthday wrong by a week, but he managed to cause havoc to tourists around St James’s Park Lake and close down the entirety of the Mall on his journey to receive his birthday gifts, delivered to Buckingham Palace itself.

Matt Dille was on hand to present a special birthday cake and said ‘I’ve been a fan of Mr. Bean since I was three years old so getting to meet him in person today was a dream come true. It’s been an amazing day – and a true one-off to see him in person.’

Bystanders like Yasmin from Germany said ‘We were walking past Buckingham Palace when we saw Mr. Bean’s car. It was a great surprise as I’m a massive fan. We love him back in Germany!’

A classic symbol of British comedy world-wide, with fans in over 190 territories, 35 million Mr. Bean DVDs and videos bought, 63 million fans of Facebook and 1.5 billion views of his clips on YouTube, today’s surprise event was an one-off for fans from all over the world as they were treated to this typically ‘Mr. Bean’ visit from the eccentric loner himself.
