Just watched the closing ceremoney, allow me to head off any potential criticisms:
– During the flag raising the 56 fake ethinic children are now being faked by 56 grown ups (I’m sure those children didn’t grow up in 2 weeks.) No doubt they are all Han (except a close up on a woman who appears to be ethinic, possibly CGI enhanced?) And they were again fake singing, no doubt using 56 other people’s voices.
– The king of the drums was not flying, rather hanging on wires – just like the moon goddess during the opening ceremoney.
– The perfectly synchronized fireworks aerial must be CGI. No doubt about it.
– The entire dance number was pirated from Circ De Sole, down to those giant drums that didn’t make a sound when the soundtrack was misqued (no doubt the drum sound were from a different drum, how cruel it is to the unseen drum.)
Did I miss anything?
