How to find your James Bond name. 1) say your last name. 2) say your first name then your last name. 3) Take a sip of martini. #Bond24— Felicity Morse (@FelicityMorse) December 4, 2014
What? Do I take it from the hashtag they're making a Bond/ 24 crossover? "The name's Bauer, Jack Bauer" #Bond24— Nigel Fletcher (@nigelfletcher) December 4, 2014
