Orbital & Stephen Hawking Rock The Paralympic Games

This video captures the Orbital + Stephen Hawking performance at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Paralympics.

The performance defiantly celebrates the possibilities embraced by the Paralympiad, and features Orbital’s Where Is It Going? and Ian Dury’s Spasticus Autisticus.

Better than the 2012 Olympic opener? Check it out and let us know what you think!
