Olympic Opening Ceremony Participant Captures Inside View with Hidden Camera

Update: The video is no longer available. Apparently the Olympic Committee is cracking down on unauthorized videos.


Want to see what it was like to be a participant in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics? One 26-year-old participant decided to build a hidden camera into his/her costume, capturing this awesome footage showing a performer’s perspective of the show.

    Won’t be hard to figure out who this is, with all the HD cams around. Bet they will get caught.

    wow, the show was even more boring from the stage

  • hellziggy

    IOC is not to be crossed. They also are threatening US athletes from tweeting praise for their sponsors. #rule40 .
    This falls along the same lines of NBC getting twitter to shut down a U.K. journalist, for his tweets criticising the networks Olympic coverage.

    The issue of copyright is really being abused. The above clip is not the Olympic games but a personal point of view of that show. Point of view is personal no matter what it represents. On the other hand, I like the fact that they abuse copyright because sooner or later this issue will explode in a bad way for all those giants.

    The Olympics/IOC is more of a business than a sporting event!

    Already blocked? Phew, that was fast! The main disciplines in the Olympic Games 2012 appear to be copyright protection and profit making: absolutely everything in sight must belong to someone who shall decide if, how, when or to whom to sell it. I don’t know who may win, but it already looks like we are all loosing.

    The Olympic Spirit is now money and merchandising. In this Digital Era London 2012 will pass to posterity as the Olympic that never happened.
