The Olympics are over, long live the Olympics! On the night the Summer Games concluded in Rio de Janeiro, the Japanese Olympic Committee released their trailer for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. It's actually pretty good at making you look forward to the games, which is saying a lot coming off two exhausting (but exhilarating) weeks in Brazil. Between the shots of Tokyo, the animation, the video games, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, it's also a big treat for fans of Japanese culture. So, just play this on a loop several hundred thousand times until it's time for Tokyo 2020.

And yes, that was the Prime Minister appearing at Rio's closing ceremony wearing a Mario costume in the rain to invite everyone to Japan. You're welcome.
