Rio 2016 Closing Ceremony Live Chat

Recommended Posts

This is what I was hoping for. The cool, youthful, crazy, modern Japan that's given so much to the world. Whoever's done this segment, give them the OC contract now :)

I never was too fond of Asia (nothing racist, I just wasn't really interested in going on vacation there) - but now I want to LIVE in Tokyo! ;) If it's anything like that presentation in real life, it must be the coolest city in the world! ;)

It is very cool to live there - especially if you are not Japanese.

I'm gonna have to watch the handover again on Youtube, because CBC cut to a commercial break near the beginning.

Oh no, and what a downer after that super fucking sexy handover segment - welcome to the "garbage and ****" segment, aka the speeches by Carlos Nuzman and Thomas Bach.

Pretty good handover! But where are the female robots?

Expect two thousand and twenty of them in four years' time.

Glad to see they didnt shied away form showing anime and videogames on their presentation. I was literally blown away with everything and laughed with Shinzo Abe dressed as Mario :lol:

Good handover, much better than I expected. I'm already excited for Tokyo 2020!

Does Nuzman have Parkinson's? I thought that he was shaking that heavily during the opening ceremony because he was nervous, but this looks serious.

Wonderful the handover, the jazz music was MARVELOUS (I'd like to download it), and the ending with the finish tune of Mario. 

Can't wait to Tokyo 2020

No Pokemon? Not even Pikachu??? Utter fail!!!

Actually loved it! It's like a broadway show about technology! Easily the best handover ceremony ever! Beijing's has just been knocked out, and Sochi's has been pushed to 3rd.
