The Closing ceremony was pretty good. I was damn impress by those oversize (i,e. HUGE animatronic Bear, Rabbit, etc...). Seriously, that was some amazing technology for something that BIG to exhibit emotion. The facial animation.....wow. But as great as that was, there was one particular moment that just gave me the most awesome hair-raising moment I've ever witness during any Closing ceremony. By now we all know about the snafu that stood out during the Opening ceremony (referring to the Snowflakes into the Olympic Rings and how the 5th didn't work). Well, during the Closing, there was a callback to that moment and instead of using tech for this one, they were using thousands of dances to mimic that "disaster" be recreating everything that had happened. It got a big laugh as it was still "not working". But just as the music hits a crescendo, BAM! The Snowflake expands into the Ring and the crowd reaction to it was ELECTRIC. The hair on my amrs and neck stood up like never before. What an awesome moment. I wish there was a video to post, but all of them have been taken down.
