The World Cup Opening Ceremony Was Tripping Balls

If you thought a bunch of Ruskies singing “Get Lucky” at the Winter Olympics was weird, buckle up, muchacho. Whoever crafted Brazil’s World Cup Opening Ceremony must’ve downed an ounce of mushroom caps and a half gallon of caipirinhas before going to work, because the event was tripping balls.

If you were sitting at home watching Telemundo when, all of a sudden, the room tilted sideways and clocks melted off the wall, fear not: it wasn’t the brown acid. It was just the trippiest production this side of Circus Circus.
