It’s been 25 years since Rowan Atkinson entertained the world with a character called Mr Bean. He celebrated the milestone achievement with a drive, in his style, near the Buckingham Palace, London.
The 60-year-old comedian actor was all in his bean character during the celebrations. He was atop the famous British Leyland mini 1000 with his sofa. His arrival recreated a memorable comic scheme from the bean series, where he packs his vehicle with shopping bags and finds an alternative way to drive the car by sitting atop and driving with the help of a broom.
The car had a #MrBean25 hashtag marking the anniversary of the show which ran from 1990-1995. The show inspired animated series and two feature films. Bean’s famous silent teddy also came along for the ride.
