Happy Birthday Mr Bean: Funniest Gifs, Bizarre Death Hoaxes of Rowan Atkinson

Funnyman Rowan Atkinson, who celebrated his 60th birthday on 6 January, stole our hearts 25 years ago, when the first episode of “Mr Bean” aired. Each one of the episodes centred around the mischievous and funny Englishman has been watched and rewatched by viewers across the world. 

Although the original “Mr Bean” series only ran for one season, Atkinson’s undeniable onscreen presence and exceptional comic timing inspired animated series, two books for adults, a children’s book and two films — “Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie” and “Mr. Bean’s Holiday“.

Popularity, in Hollywood specially, leads to numerous rumours and Atkinson has had to deal with the worst kind; death hoaxes. Although such rumours have popped and gotten cleared many times in the 25 years of “Mr Bean” popularity, the one that got most media attention was on 16 November 2013. 

An unknown user not only spread the rumour, but even created a condolence page on Facebook titled “RIP Rowan Atkinson”. The page, which got over a million likes, claimed that the actor died around 11.00 am ET on Sunday and requested fans to show their sympathy and condolences by “liking” the page. Many fans believed the story and posted messages on Facebook as well as Twitter expressing their sorrow.

It was later clarified that the then 58-year-old was in fact alive and kicking.
