Famous English actor Rowan Atkinson, perhaps best known for his role as the popular TV character Mr. Bean, paid his first visit to China on August 19, where he danced with aunties and uncles galore while looking utterly hilarious at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, Apple Daily reports.
Atkinson was invited to participate in a Shanghai-based variety show called “Talk Show of the 80s Tonight”, the director of which arranged for him to dance with the middle-aged and elderly folk at the expo center.
“Mr. Bean and the elderly people are in similar cohorts and the host of the show, Wang Jijian always talks about plaza dancing, so I decided to invite him to perform with them. Surprisingly, he was really good,” director Qin Hairui said.
Yes. He. Was.
We don’t care if it looks like a green screen, it’s hilarious.
