Dancers at the Closing Ceremony for the Sochi Winter Olympics today made a humorous nod to the notorious opening ceremony mishap, when only four of the five Olympic rings lit up during a dramatic set piece.

The troupe cleverly recreated the iconic Olympic rings symbol, with one group holding tightly together in a brief nod to the little snowflake that failed to blossom a little over two weeks ago. This time, the group eventually did bloom, after a sufficiently lengthy pause, bringing the games to a full circle close.
