BBC: Tokyo 2020 clues: when Japan’s PM dressed up as Super Mario
With athletes and viewers exhausted, the closing ceremony for Rio2016 was passing off as expected…

Until Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe popped out of a giant green pipe dressed up as video game character Super Mario, one of Japan’s best-known exports.

It was then the world got a clue that, for Tokyo2020, the next Olympic hosts would take full and shameless advantage of Japan’s pop culture icons.

Abe making pipe-dream a reality
The Tokyo 2020 video beamed to audiences in Rio showed Mario running excitedly around Tokyo then jumping into his famous green pipe.

Cue the slow rise of the green pipe in Rio with a hunched Mario-like figure perched on top.

Japan’s Prime Minister, not famous for his extrovert displays and pop culture references, emerges dressed as Super Mario and doffs his hat to enthusiastic crowds, then setting social media alight.

里約奧運今畫下休止符,不過閉幕式上至今最讓人驚艷的卻是下屆主辦城市日本東京的創意影片,日本首相安倍晉三還化身瑪利歐,透過哆啦A夢提供的水管瞬間移動,以本尊出現在里約閉幕式舞台上。‬
