Someone behind the Instagram account Kingdom of Bean is trying to answer a simple question. “If everyone was Mr. Bean, what would the world look like?” The Instagrammer is giving us an idea with their collection of images that superimpose the face of actor Rowan Atkinson with celebrities of all stripes. From James Corden (“James Corbean”) to Mark Zuckerberg (“Mark Zuckerbean”) to Ariana Grande (“Ariana Beande”), the artist shows that Mr. Bean’s face can fit anyone.
As Mr. Bean, Atkinson is known for his expressive eyes and eyebrows that say a lot without having to utter any words. The portraits on the Kingdom of Bean showcase a few of the actor’s most notable expressions. Featured are his raised brows with a sly smile as well as similarly raised eyebrows and a smirk, and a wrinkled nose as if he’s confused or surprised. The result is a complete reimagining of the celebrities that we know. But for better or worse? That’s for you to decide.
