The Italian Version of Mr Bean!

I know Mr Bean went down quite well in Italy. Indeed, they still show Mr Bean on TV here. However, what I did not know was that one crazy Italian is actually imitating him!

If you click around Arnaldo Mangini‘s site – this is a good a point as any to ‘click-off’, you’ll find out what I mean. To be fair, the guy does admit to taking off the original Rowan Atkinson character, but I’ve no idea whether the original Mr Bean knows about this impersonator.  Mangini does look like Mr Bean too!

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.


Well, they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

It’s amazing what you dig up from the Web. And no, I was not looking for anything to do with Mr Bean. Honest.
