  • Hah, I was just talking about this on Twitter and TAY the other day. It really surprised me when I was watching it live. Just sitting there thinking “hang on… this sounds familiar” until the realisation 😛

    ps. There’s a better quality video of the performance on the US Kotaku article (Wonder why it’s not the same here?)

  • Let’s just hope the IOC doesn’t come kicking in Kotaku’s door for hosting footage of the games. Without a license, that can be … well… “Stronger, faster, higher, lawyers” seems to be their motto of late.
