Japanese Prime Minister Super Mario appearance at Rio Olympics


Japanese Prime Minister dressed as Super Mario made a viral appearance at Rio Olympics 2016.   A video commercial promoting the Tokyo Olympics 2020 was broadcasted at the stadium in Rio Olympics' closing ceremony.

The video highlighted Japan's amazing landmarks, history, hit video games, and animations, including Super Mario.

At the end of the video, athletes passed a red ball symbolizing the Japanese flag, country of the rising sun, to the prime minister dressed in sharp navy blue business suits.

As he headed out of the Japanese parliament in his limousine, he realized that he would be late for his appearance in Rio, so he transformed into Super Mario and upon examining the map of Rio (a word play on Mario's name "Ma RIO") he dived into the iconic green Super Mario pipe and appeared in miraculously person at the Rio stadium wearing the Mario hat carrying the red ball.

The video went viral fast. Everyone thought it was a really clever play. With the popularity of the recent hit game - Pokemon GO, the prime minister is doing his part to promote the gaming industry of Japan and its Olympics Game in 2020. The showmanship is stunning. After all, Japan is still the 3rd largest economy in the world and cannot wait to show its glamor and rich culture.

Tokyo Tower, Senso Ji template at Asakusa, Shinkansen Bullet Train, Shibuya Crossing (Lost in Translation), Captain Tsubasa (animation) are also featured in the video.

Pokemon GO Egg Hatching Guide

How to hatch Pokemon GO eggs efficiently?

No cheating. Driving around won't work. It's not safe.

If sitting in the passenger seat and stuck in a car in heavy traffic, you may be able to log steps by occasionally shake and move your phone allowing the app to check for new locations. Players have hired Uber and Lyft cars for hatching.

Below is a PoGo egg hatching chart - one of the many visual guides illustrating what each of the 10km 5km 2km eggs can potentially hatch.

People have hatched 1800 Snorlax from 10km eggs. 

Some pokemons are easily caught in the wild than hatched. It depends on your geo location.

Hatching eggs can help you log rare pokemons and those that are uncommon inyou neighborhood and unlock info cards in Pokedex.

Pokemons hatched from eggs bring more candies than caught. 

Updated games are now less likely to crash but it also is better at catching players that are cheating. Traveling too fast won't log any mileage.

Some players recommended traveling by bike. In some states using phones and engaging in other distractions may be completely illegal. You may not even be allowed to wear headphones while biking. It's not a safe method. Similarly other players considered roller skating.
