Russia has gotten terrible TripAdvisor reviews this entire week after reporters covering the Olympic Games have been treated to broken toilets and mass dog murder. That’s why it is of the utmost importance for the country that they absolutely NAIL the Opening Ceremony. Failure is not an option when the entire world is watching and already pretty concerned.

Let’s see how they did.

Wuh-oh.

What you see above is supposed to be the five rings of the Olympic logo blossoming from giant, glowing snowflakes. Four of them work perfectly. The fifth is probably really, really drunk.

Luckily, planners were able to send a bear out on a tiny bicycle to distract from the malfunction. As for how the Russian government will handle the ceremony’s designer Baron Pierre de Coubertin? Let’s hope he likes dogs. (The Atlantic)

Can Tom Haverford pin Ron Swanson in the wrestling event?

Spoiler: Absolutely not.

But if that sounds like something you might be interested, you will probably want to watch this video. And if you are on board with the video, you’ll almost certainly just fall in love with the two videos that are located right here.

It’s over a month before we‘ll see Parks and Recreation coming back, so trust us…you need this.
