I'm a sucker for the Olympics. The pageantry, the hypocrisy, the ridiculousness. I'll take the whole thing. Even the opening ceremonies. This year's opening was, for my money, about as good as it gets. Here's the relevant video. Just fast-forward to about the 7:00 mark.
The arena floor is basically functioning as a giant IMAX screen being projected upon (I think) from below. Yeah. Check out the whales (around the 9:00 mark). Insane. This is 9th Wonder of the World stuff.
