Yes, we are aware of the fact that news channels have to keep the ratings as high as possible. The Olympic teams should be presented in the best and most impressive way possible and on top of that, you have to trigger heavy patriotism for this one. It’s countries competing against each other after all. With an international event like that you need to keep the masses satisfied and as we all like to think of ourselves, we are way above the average viewer. Still, there is no denying that some of them just really heavily provoke the “WTF?” expression in our faces, when all that’s left is wondering where along the way this just went downhill.
The official Olympic Teaser above is by far not the worse but it kept reminding us of a really trashy nightclub circa 1995, Eurodance music is on top of its game and the people around you are popping ecstasy pills as if they were candy. Click on the photo of the two Austrian dudes cuddling it up in fierce outfits (they maybe should have gotten one size bigger) to watch the madness go down.
For your sake we spent a fair amount of our precious office time cruising through awkward, dramatic and at times, even slightly entertaining Olympic teasers to collect this best-of list for you. Be prepared for Russian Tina Turner, snowboarding’s very own Lord of the Rings and a guide to pushy parenting.
