Bean There...

You have to respect a creator such as Rowan Atkinson, who despite the worldwide success and popularity of Mr. Bean, has never considered running the character into the ground. Aside from the initial run and the second greatest Christmas special ever, he has been remarkably restrained when it has come to rolling the character back out, usually after a considerable number of years have passed.

So, 24 years since Bean first appeared and 7 years since his last appearance (not counting his cameo during the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies), and here, really rather unexpectedly, he reappears in a Snickers commercial. And it doesn't feel forced, or callous or exploitative at all. It's just good to see him bumbling again.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
