Official Footage

This Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony video is perhaps the most coveted media on the web today. Any type of visual coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is the world's media darling of the week.

Last week we showed you leaked footage by a Korean news show that showed the official dress rehearsal for the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. The video has since been removed, but who cares? Now we can show you the real thing!

The video above shows clips from AP's live coverage of the 08/08/08 games.

Judging by the YouTube video, China really held up their end of the bargain. With 100,000 people in the bird's nest stadium almost 4 billion people watching CCTV's broadcast (plus way more on the way), it would have been a horrible moment not to live up to expectations.

The Beijing Olympics opening ceremony truly was a spectacular show.

Surprisingly, only 55,131 have discovered the video above at time of posting, but I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes viral over the weekend as those who worked Friday catch up on what they missed!
