Tonga's Oiled-Up Flag-Bearer Was The Highlight Of The Opening Ceremony

My Tonga hit the floor.

The parade of nations is always one of the best parts of the Olympics opening ceremony.

And in Rio, everything was going wonderfully. From Afghanistan to Suriname.

Then we got to T. Tanzania... Timor Leste... Togo... TONGA!!!


This is taekwondo player Pita Taufatofua leading Tonga's team of seven athletes.

The crowd were ~very~ pleased when he entered.

And the world was right there with them.

And thank you to the flag bearer from Tonga for bringing attention to #Taekwondo at the Olympics! :D :D #PitaTaufatofua

Tonga's baby-oiled, half-naked, skirt-wearing flag bearer easily won individual costume Gold #OlympicOpeningCeremony #rio2016

Damn the Tonga flag bearer 😍😍 😂

Tonga's flagbearer was so oily, countries are looking to invade him #OpeningCeremony

We have a feeling we'll be watching a lot of taekwondo this Olympics.
