The Queen and James Bond drop into Blackpool

I knew it was only a matter of time before we began to see riffs off Happy And Glorious, and last night I came across this fascinating little film. It’s obviously made to advertise a hotel up in Blackpool, but what strikes me  is the effort, time and money which must have gone into making it. They obviously couldn’t get Daniel Craig or any James Bond actor (or indeed the Queen) to be in it, but the hotel and production  company must have spent quite a bit playing with and paying homage to the film in the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. I  like how it doesn’t take the piss, but plays with the original, making the film a nice little tribute.
