Little Brother Syndrome
Olympics closing ceremonies are never as highly regarded as the opening ceremonies. Some people don't even bother watching them. It's a shame, because while they lack the attention, scale and funding that the opener is afforded, they can still throw out some fantastic ideas and put on a hell of a show.
The London 2012 Olympics closing saw some inspiring moments - a VW van that morphs in to a massive glowing octopus, even better use of the audience LED cells than in the opening, STOMP, Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill and (if you're in to that sort of thing) the Spice Girls standing on light-studded taxis.

...these fabulously surreal cyclists who were pulling the Petshop Boys!
