Queen's Guard Spices Up Buckingham Palace Routine, Sparks Inquiry

If you were stuck walking back and forth in a straight line all day, you might do something crazy, too.

Maybe even something really out there, like switching up your tempo from time to time. Or pretending to stop and pick something up off the sidewalk. Or, in a truly daring act -- throwing in a few graceful spins:

A tourist captured this member of the Queen's Guard at Buckingham Palace spicing up his routine with some unauthorized moves. The entire three-and-a-half minute routine is hilarious, if you're into cheeky British humor.

Unfortunately for the unidentified guardsman, the British Army has launched an investigation into the footage, reports The London Times.

Regardless of the investigation's outcome, Mr. Bean would undoubtedly be proud.

WATCH the full routine, above.
