Yes, the Japanese Prime Minister jumped out of a pipe dressed as Mario
Remember when Queen Elizabeth II jumped out of a helicopter for no discernable reason during the London 2012 opening ceremony?
From that day onwards, Olympic-hosting countries around the globe started to draw up plans as to how they could wring every last YouTube hit out of their very own aging national icons.
Which leads us to this beautiful point, where we can gaze upon a bemused-looking Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe jump out of a massive green pipe dressed as Super Mario.
Check mate, Queeny.
