Japanese PM appears as Super Mario in transition to Tokyo 2020

Tokyo 2020 is only four years away, and as the games transition from Brazil to Japan, we got a taste of what the next host nation has in store.

The theme for Tokyo seems to nod heavily toward video game culture, as Pac-Man was included in the presentation in addition to Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe appearing from a warp pipe dressed as iconic Nintendo figure Super Mario.

The prime minister did not stay in costume too long, but on the heels of a Mario Kart-inspired intro video, which concluded with Mario jumping into the warp tube in Japan and Abe emerging in Brazil, it seemed like a fitting tribute.
